Remove the onion from the cavity of the fowl nd put the bird in another pot. Put the broth in a bowl with the onion and add murri, saffron, lavender, citron leaves and sprigs of thyme. Mix this together. Cut limes in half and stuff them into the bird(s) cavities and pour the sauce over it. Sprinkle it with almonds.
