Make Traditional Ube Jam For

Ube Jam, also known as Ube Halaya, is the gorgeously purple traditional base for most Ube desserts in the Philippines. It’s so simple to make, and I’m lucky to have had some authentic help along the way! Recipe:

Ube is a wonderfully colored yam, a relative to our more familiar sweet potatoes, and is a popular ingredient in the Philippines. The texture is even similar to sweet potatoes, but while sweet potatoes have a nutty, vanilla taste, purple yams are even sweeter and a bit more mellow.

You can use this ube halaya jam in baked enriched doughs, ube pastries, halo-halo (a great Filipino dessert made of crushed ice, evaporated milk, and other ingredients like coconut strips and sweetened beans), and even my 3 Ingredient Ube Ice Cream!
