Turkey Burgers with Apple-Mint Relish
For the Apple-Mint Relish:
2 apples, preferably Golden Delicious
¼ cup (2 fl oz/60 ml) cider vinegar
2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint (best) or 1 teaspoon dried mint
1 tablespoon olive oil
½ teaspoon celery seed
½ teaspoon mustard seed
1/8 teaspoon salt
For the Turkey Burgers:
2 lb (1 kg) ground (minced) turkey
¼ cup (1 oz/30 g) chopped shallots
1 clove garlic, minced
1 ½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon freshly ground pepper
To prepare the relish, peel, halve, and core the apples. Chop them finely or, using the large holes of a hand-held grater/shredder, shred them. Transfer to a large bowl and add the vinegar, mint, oil, celery seeds, mustard seeds, and salt. Stir and toss with a fork to combine, then cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving to blend the flavors and keep the relish crisp.
To prepare the turkey burgers, in a large bowl, combine the turkey, shallots, garlic, salt, and pepper. Using a fork, mix gently to combine. Shape into 6 patties each about 3 inches in diameter and 1 inch thick.
Grill, turning two or three times, until the burgers are well browned on both sides and no longer pink in the center, 16-20 minutes.
Serve with the patty on a plate with the relish on top, or on a large leaf of lettuce so it can be wrapped up and eaten by hand.
