Today is National Waffle Day! While Belgians get most of the credit for popularizing this classic item, it was actually an American named Cornelius Swarthout who patented the first waffle iron on this date in 1869, making a big impression with breakfast lovers everywhere.
There’s no shortage of ways to trick out or syrup up a waffle these days, owing to the versatility of the waffle’s unique surface real estate. Our Chef Teresa Hansen took up the challenge of filling those doughy crevasses with sweetness that will leave you feeling amazing, and she landed on the perfect fruit for the job: yuzu.
Yuzu is an exotic Asian citrus with many beneficial health properties, including anti-inflammatory antioxidants and memory-boosting compounds. It’s also full of linalool – the super terp that helps reduce anxiety with its aroma alone. Take a fruit that’s this good for you and infuse it with THC to make Good Things Coming Fruit Jellies, and you’ve got the perfect waffle topper to start your day off buttery.
Try Chef Teresa’s recipe below (don’t forget the blueberries too!):
