Ginataang Langka refers to unripe jackfruit cooked in coconut milk. Although jackfruits are considered fruits, unripe ones have the same attributes as vegetables; this was the reason why jackfruit in this recipe is treated as such. As for the flavor, much of it comes from the salted dried fish (locally known as daing); I also like using shrimp cube to add more taste to this dish.
Halayang ube is a dessert made from boiled mashed ube (purple yam) mixed with coconut milk, evaporated milk, and sugar. In the olden days, a fine consistency was achieved by passing the mixture through a piece of sinamay. With its bright color, it is a favorite at fiestas. Also, it is typically served during Christmas season.
