    Citrus Cream
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1 fresh lime
  • 1 pinch of granulated sugar
  • 1 pinch of ground, black pepper
  1. Pour oil in a large saucepan. Add onion, clove, cinnamon, and sage and cook on medium heat or until soft, about 15 minutes. Add squash and cook for 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Add honey and broth, bring to a simmer, and cook until the squash is tender, about 15 minutes.
