Ube Halaya (Purple Yam Dessert or Jam)

This Filipino purple yam dessert (ube halaya or ube jam) is not only eye-catching, it’s totally delicious!! Mashed purple yam is cooked slowly with butter, evaporated milk and condensed milk which give this colorful dessert such a luscious buttery, creamy and sweet flavor. Great on its own or as topping for halo-halo or as jam or spread forbad and other pastries.
