Preparation:I. The Stock
Combine everything in a kettle. Boil gently, partially-covered, about
45 minutes. Remove from heat, let stand 1 hour. Strain and discard

II. The Soup
Mix the following dry ingredients together:
Flour, dry mustard, turmeric, ground cumin, ground coriander,
ground gloves, cayenne pepper (more, to taste)

1.) Make the stock. Take out yogurt/or sour cream and allow to come to
room temperature.
2.) Heat a heavy skillet. Add butter, ginger, garlic and a dash of
salt. Stir and cook over moderate heat a minute or so, then add
onions. Saute another 5 minutes, then add the salt and apples, stirring
well. Add lemon juice and sprinkle in the pre-comined flour and
spices, stirring constantly. Cover and cook 8-10 minutes over low
heat, stirring occasionally. Turn off the heat and let it rest about
10 minutes. Heat the stock.
3.) Puree the stock and sauteed mixture together, bit by bit, in a
food processor or blender. Make sure the result is very smooth.
Transfer it to a kettle or heavy saucepan and whisk in the yogurt
FURTHER. Just heat it over low heat right before serving time (the
soup can be made a couple of hours ahead of time and heated just
before it's served.).

Serve topped with slivered, toasted almonds.
