Acclaimed author, farmer and educator Leah Penniman shares how to make Soup Joumou, also known as the Haitian Independence Soup. It is a hearty pumpkin soup traditionally served on January 1 to commemorate the day of Haiti’s liberation from France in 1804. The soup was once a delicacy reserved for white enslavers but forbidden to the enslaved people who cooked it.
