Method

Mix 1 cup of the cream, the cottage cheese and the flour in a mixing bowl. Beat until smooth then blend in the remaining cream. This can be done by hand, with a hand mixer or in a blender. Set aside in refrigerator.


Mix all of the spices together and divide into 2 equal portions. Take a large, heavy pot and place on high heat for 3-4 minutes.


Add the vegetables (except for 2 cups of the diced potatoes) and 1 of the spice portions. Stir and cook over the High heat for 4-6 minutes being sure to scrape the crusts that form on the bottom of the pot. Add the apple juice and then the apple sauce.


Stir and cook for 2-3 minutes then add the stock and the other spice portion. Cook while stirring for 12 minutes. Remove and either rice the mixture or purée it in a blander until it is smooth.


Return to the pot, add the 2 cups of diced potatos, bring to a boil, reduce heat to Low, stir well, cover and cook for 15 minutes. Add more stock if more liquid is needed. Blend in the cream mixture and continue to cook stirring for 3-4 minutes. Serve hot.
