What is Ube? Ube is a Filipino dessert made from a purple yam. It has achieved recent online popularity due to its rich, aesthetic purple color, but has been a part of Filipino culture for centuries. Ube is first mentioned in 1613, in the first Spanish-Filipino dictionary. Its most traditional preparation is called Ube Halaya, which involves mashing the purple yam and simmering it into a thick, pudding-like paste with sugar and fresh milk from a water buffalo. With influence from American occupation, evaporated and condensed milk were often added as well, making the Ube Halaya sweeter than its traditional counterpart.
The yam itself is exceptional at absorbing flavor from other ingredients in a dish- for example the woodiness of coconut, or the richness of cream while maintaining its natural nuttiness.. Many historians consider the use of Ube to be a testament to the many cultures who have occupied the Philippines over the years- its preparation has been influenced by the Spanish, the Americans, and the Japanese.
