Haitian Pumpkin Soup

This soup/stew came from the Whole Foods Market webpage with this interesting heading: Haitian households celebrate their country's Independence Day with bowls of this comforting soup. The national holiday falls on New Year's Day, when Haitians walk from house to house to pay friends and family the first visits of the New Year. Although this is a vegetarian version, add small cubes of browned beef stew meat along with the pumpkin, if you like. Simply remove and then return them to the pot just as you do the hot peppers. This recipe was inspired by Norzina, a lumber and charcoal vendor.
Even though I only added about a teaspoon of dried minced jalapeno and then removed most of it later, it was too hot for the Hub and I. The Hub also decided he wasn't a fan of turnips either. Andrew liked it when he came to visit for the weekend.
