Helayang Ube is a ubiquitous ingredient in Filipino cuisine. You find it used in making everything from smoothies and cakes to bread and ice cream.
Ube is a sweet purple yam used in Filipino cuisine. Do not confuse this with the Peruvian Purple Potatoes or the Japanese Purple Potatoes. Ube has much darker and richer purple flesh and is much sweeter. Here in America, it most often found frozen. Look for frozen cooked and mashed ube in your local Asian market.
The first time I had Ube Ice Cream was when I was in Penang (Malaysia) and I have been a fan ever since. There are a few different ways to make ube ice cream. Many often just use ube extract or ube powder to get the color and flavor. However, I wanted to opt for the most natural and traditional way of making the Ube Ice Cream.
This methodology includes making Ube Jam first. Ube Jam is common in the Phillipines and often had for breakfast with toast and cheese.
I made this Ube Jam a little looser than when I make Helayang Ube (Gluten Free Ube Cake) and is the staple for the ice cream.
