Hi James! What a fun way to grow apples! Be aware though, that the tree you grow may only produce crab apples, or tasteless, inedible apples. The variety is very unlikely to resemble variety the pip came from. But it's a great way to grow apples, and who knows, you might grow a brand new type.
But if you want to give it a go, just save the seed from an apple and sow them in a pot in spring. Keep repotting whenever the pots becaome root-bound, until you're ready to plant it in the ground. It should take around six to seven years before the tree fruits, when you'll find out if the experiment was worth it or not!
