Ube Halaya

Makes 2 cups

1 kilo Uncooked ube

1/4 cup Butter

1 can Evaporated milk

1 1/2-2 cups White sugar

  1. Boil the ube in water until tender. Once cool, peel the ube then grate using either a cheese grater or a kitchen grinder.
  2. In a large non-stick pot or pan, melt the butter over low heat. Pour in the evaporated milk and sugar, then stir well.
  3. Add the grated ube then stir continuously until the texture of the mixture becomes really thick, about 20 -30 minutes under low fire. Stir continuously so that the bottom does not burn.
  4. Transfer the mixture to a buttered mold or llanera and let the mixture cool. Refrigerate until ready to eat.
