|An empty jar of the purple stuff. Oh, yeah...|
I've prepared ube three ways: 1. as small sponge cakes called puto, 2. as a thick, sticky paste served up in slabs (which tastes better than it sounds), and 3. as ice cream. Guess which way is my favorite?
I scream! You scream! We all scream for ube ice cream!
The best way to make ube ice cream is to use a recipe for coconut ice cream and add ube to it. I've tried making it with a vanilla ice cream recipe and the ube needed something to balance it. Coconut provides the perfect yin to ube's yang.
