    Recipe name should be changed to Paul's Lamb and Lentil Soup and SKIP the apples. When I read the recipe I knew I would not be putting apples in it, and that was confirmed by the one review prior to mind. I put a few stalks celery and halved onions in the pot when cooking and removed when I removed the bones. This was delicious. My family loved it and it will be one I will make over and over, especially after having a lamb dinner.  -  11 Jan 2012  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Did not enjoy this soup. The flavours of the apple and wine did not blend well with the lamb.  -  23 Dec 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
