The celebration of the Independence of Haiti in 1804 marks the beginning of the history of pumpkin cream. Haitians collaborated to make a special soup on January 1 of that same year, to commemorate their liberation from French colonial rule. 

The French colonists maintained that the inhabitants of that country could never get together to do anything. To commemorate their fight for freedom, Haitians still prepare and serve traditional pumpkin cream known as “joumou” to friends and family.

The special meaning of pumpkin cream

The only food available to Haitians while under French colonial rule was bread soup. They have not been allowed to eat food containing pumpkins, meat broth, and other vegetables. This unusual soup was developed as a representation of cooperation in the face of adversity.

It was served to everyone at the first Independence Day celebration and is still being served today.
