Hokkaidô Pumpkin Soup - My favorite Autumn Recipe

Still in autumn mood I want to share my favorite seasonal recipe. Hokkaidô Pumpkin Soup! I really hope that some of you try it because it tastes soo delicious and is a real explosion of different tastes. In addition to that I do love its color! Have a look:

What you need:  

1 hokkaidô pumpkin (0.8-1.2 kg),
1 or 2 apples,
1 onion,
butter or oil,
0.6-0.7 litre of stock,
some ginger spice, curry, chili powder, salt and pepper (season to taste),
some sherry (yes, sherry! but not too much!),
60 ml sour cream

 What to do:
  1. Clean the pumpkin, cut it in half and get rid of the seeds with the help of a spoon. Then cut the pumpkin into several cubes.
  2. Clean the apple and peel the apple and the onion. Then cut both into small cubes.
  3. Heat the butter or oil in a cooking pot and start to stew the mixture of apple and onion. After a while add the pumpkin cubes and stew them, too.
  4. Add the stock and cook it on small heat for about 15-20 minutes (cover your pot).
  5. Season to taste with all spices, add the sourcream and sherry and puree it e.g. with a mixer. 
  6. Taste it again and perhaps add some more spices.
  7. Enjoy it! 
Please let me know if you tried this soup. I am curious to know what you think of it! By the way what are your favorite autumn recipes?
