"I just had to share this with you all! This soup, which is more like a stew, is sustaining enough to make a complete meal if accompanied by some good, crusty bread. The meat, combined with spices and with a tang of lemon and apricots, has the flavor of North Africa."

  1. Soak the apricots in water for 2 hours or more until soft; drain.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large, heavy saucepan over medium heat. Add the garlic, cinnamon, cumin, and paprika; cook and stir for 1 minute. Raise the heat to medium-high, crumble in the ground lamb, stirring and breaking it up with a wooden spoon for a few minutes until browned. Stir in the drained apricots, celery, green pepper, and tomato.
  3. Using a vegetable peeler, shave 5 - 6 strips of rind off the lemon and add to the soup with the juice of the lemon. Stir in the water and sugar. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer gently for half an hour. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

I followed this recipe quite closely, and it was a gently-spiced, rustic, lemony soup. I used sweet paprika, and I think I'll try hot paprika next time.

Interesting combination of flavours and the dried apricots add a different texture. I used a can of tomatoes since the 'fresh' ones available right now have no flavour.
