legend has it that yema balls were first made during the spanish era . they found a way to use up the excess yolk while the egg whites are used for the foundation of churches. (looking at the size and number of churches here, there must be a lot of yema balls made) . *this is usually served wrapped in colored cellophane. this is also very sweet. i really dont know how long it takes to make and how many servings.
