Many people find these ice-cream flavours strange. But in the Philippines, the Ube (purple yam) and Macapuno (mutant coconut) ice-cream are the most common ice-cream. Serving ice-cream inside a young coconut is a great way to enjoy it. The soft, jelly like meat of the young coconut is a refreshing addition to the taste.
This Japan-inspired salad combines a mountain yam, commonly found year-round in supermarkets, with okra stars, crunchy, tart pickled plums, and umami-filled hijiki seaweed for a rainbow of flavors, textures and colors that makes it perfect for hot summers or other times when you don't have much appetite.
