Soup Joumou Recipe

Soup Joumou  Is also known as Soup Giraumon (French) pumpkin soup (English). We serve this soup on January 1st to celebrate our independence day. Haiti has been independent since 1804, and all Haitians should be proud since we were the first nation to fight for our liberty. Joumou was reserved for the wealthy, and the slaves were forbidden to eat it. It is an honor to sit with friends and families to eat a bowl full of soup joumou :-)

In my case, I eat it throughout the year because that's one of my favorite soup. On the video, I showed step by step on how to make this delicious soup. Although I did not have Joumou, I substituted it with packaged buttermilk, it still came out yummy!
