We've been seeing beautiful baked goods made with ube - a purple yam - popping up in our Three Kitchens Podcast Instagram feed. These purple-hued goodies inspired Erin to try making the ube halaya (the purple jam used as the base for ube baking), and using it to make muffins and cookies.
As you might imagine, this sparked a lively discussion, more research, and plenty of confusion. Is what we find in our grocery stores really ube? Or is it a purple yam, or maybe a sweet potato? What we know for certain is that the muffins and cookies Erin baked were as delicious as they were beautiful to look at!
Come along with us down the rabbit hole of conflicting information about the ube trend. But mostly, join us for the delicious purple baked goods! Because at the end of the day, we're here for the food.
