Ube, a tropical purple yam, has a unique flavor that goes hand in hand with its distinct purple color.   In the Philippines, Ube is used in pastries, cakes, and ice cream.  Chari's Ube ensaymada--proudly a perennial favorite--boasts of a rich, velvety Ube cream that crowns a moist, pillowy dough. Get ready to count yourself as one of its biggest fans!
