Sunshine Squash

How do you like these beauties?  I grew them in my garden this year.  No, they're not pumpkins.  They are Sunshine Squash and will be transformed shortly into a delicious soup.  Recipe:

1 Sunshine Squash, peeled, seeded and cubed
1 small onion, diced
1 celery rib, small dice
1 apple, peeled, cored and cubed
1 garlic clove, minced
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon butter
4 cups chicken stock
1/2 teaspoon ginger (or to taste)
1/2 teaspoon salt

Melt butter and oil in a heavy-bottomed pot over medium low heat.  Saute onion, celery, apple until soft, about 7 minutes.  Add garlic to heat for one minute.  Add squash, stock and ginger.  Bring to boil, add salt.  Simmer for 20 minutes or until squash is soft.  Puree and servve with a dollop of sour cream.
