Place Onions, Celery, and Apple slices in steamer basket and steam over boiling water for 5-6 minutes until apples are tender.
When Squash is cool enough to handle, remove seeds and discard. Scoop flesh of Squash in to a stock pot or large sauce pan. Add steamed Onions, Celery and Apple. Add Broth. Bring to a Boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes.
