The Food Sport Angle 

Teaming up Major League Baseball coaches and players with the World Food Championship chefs to promote others’ welfare is a home run!

All of the chefs will use jam flavors created by noted Texas athletes, including several Texas Rangers, all made by the Jelly Queens for Wakway Farms.

I’m the first up to bat in that lineup, and I’m paired with the Texas Rangers’ coach Don Wakamatsu! How cool is that?

I created an original recipe using one of the jams designed by the Texas Rangers.

Don’s flavor is Peach Jam with a hint of cinnamon, aptly named Wak’s Perfect Peach Jam. And, with the holidays right around the corner, Wakamatsu’s Peachy Good Waffle Sandwich is the perfect fit for this delectable dish.

Dressed with Wak’s Perfect Peach Jam, crispy waffles are spread with real mayonnaise, layered with sliced turkey, ham, and jalapeno Havarti, then topped with a whipped peach and honey butter to create the perfect bite.
