 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1       sm           Head of fresh celery
    2       lg           Cooking apples
    1       oz           Butter
   60       fl           Stock
    2       md           Onions, peeled and diced
                         Salt and milled pepper
                         Milk to finish
                         Chopped parsley and
                         -browned flaked almonds
                         -to garnish
    1       t            Soft brown sugar
   In a large saucepan sweat off the diced onion in the
   butter. Wash, trim and dice the celery, add to the
   onion and continue on a low heat. Remove and bruises
   from the apples and grate them into your pan,
   discarding the core. Cook for a further 10 minutes
   before adding the stock, seasoning and sugar ~ beware
   too much salt if you are using a stock cube. Bring to
   the boil, then simmer, lid on, for 30 minutes - don't
   over cook or the celery flavour becomes jaded and the
   colours dull. Allow to cool a little before
   liquidising thoroughly. Pass through a large mesh
   sieve to ensure there are no stringy threads of celery
   remaining. Check seasoning and consistency, adding a
   little milk if needed. Serve in warmed bowls,
   sprinkled with parsley and the browned almond flakes.
