Ube - 2 Lbs

Ube, also called purple yam or greater yam, is a tuber in the morning glory family. These root vegetables have purple skin matched by purple flesh. Ube is a ubiquitous part of Filipino cuisine as one of their primary starches due its excellent flavor and dense nutritional content. Sweeter and earthier than other varieties, these potatoes should be cooked slowly to maximize the taste. The bright magenta flesh will darken into deep purple when cooked. Ube is similar to Okinawan sweet potatoes in flavor.


Uses: Cook whole in simmering salted water until a toothpick pierces easily. Cover with aluminum foil and roast slowly in the oven or over hot charcoal.
