#243 Ube Halaya

Ube Halaya

Ube halaya or purple yam is a favorite yam dessert eaten on its own or used as an ingredient for various desserts, as topping or as pastry filling (hopia).

This dessert is made from boiled purple that is grated, shredded, or mashed and combined with a can of condensed milk, vanilla extract and butter in a pan, and cooked in medium fire. Thoroughly mixed together, ube halaya has the consistency of a  ‘jam’ and serves as a fine accompaniment to many desserts such as halo-halo (as topping), added to ice desserts or a variety of rice cakes.

Bon appetit!
