775 grams cooked ube
2- 12 fl oz can evaporated milk
1-14 oz condensed milk
1-1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 stick of butter/8 tbsp
1 tbsp ube flavoring
8-10 drops of food coloring (its up to you how intense color you want )
2 drops of blue food coloring( blue color will help the purple color)
1. Cooked the ube first unpeeled(I pressured cook mine but you can boil it.to find out if your ube is cook you can poke it with barbecue stick or a knife.or the ube might cracked too thats the other to find out fit its cook or not).
2.Peel off the skin of the ube using a knife.
3.Using a kitchen blender put half of the ube into the blender . Add 1 can of the evaporated milk and puree the ube until smooth. then pour it to the big nonstick pot and do the rest of it.
4.Once all the ube has pureed. Add the the ube flavoring and the food coloring.
5.Bring the mixture to the stove and cooked this over medium high heat stirring constantly. Once you ube mixture start getting hot add in the butter. (the butter will give this jam a glossy finished and also prevent it from sticking from the bottom and the side of the pot).
6.Cook the ube until its sticky dough like texture.
7.Turn the heat off and let this cool down completely. You can stored this in the fridge for 1 week or in the freezer for 3 months.
