This duck burger with cherry salsa is a strange follow on from my pea and ham pasta recipe last month, my and my friends this month are all working on cherry recipes (my choice this time round) and I could not resist pairing duck with cherry. There are some food “couples” or pairings if you want to be proper, that go together so well and for me duck and cherries are one of those. In fact duck is a wonderful meat to pair with lots of fruits with oranges or plums both being classics, but at this time of the year, for me it is cherries, we have 3 cherry trees in the garden that produce the most wonderful fruit, I make all sorts of dishes with them ranging from jams and syrups to of course the wonderful cherry salsa that is served on my duck burger and cherry wine, hic… It is a might good slurp although I doubt the ‘mumble’ kilos of cherries required to make it a viable recipe to be dropping here on Krumpli.
If you follow me on Facebook you may have noticed the genus of this burger form sometime over the last 6 weeks in a post I shared by another food blogger, Slow the Cook Down, did a fantastic shredded duck burger and whilst my flavours and approach to the burger are a little different, the idea is all thanks to Betty. Whilst we are talking about my approach to this burger I want this burger to hold together on the outside and be wonderfully loose on the inside, in order to achieve this be careful not to compress the burger too much. Don’t be afraid of working it too much, you can keep spinning on your work surface and smoothing with your hands to get a pretty uniform surface, but don’t start pushing, it will take a little time, but it will come together. As is the new way at the end of every month, here are the recipes from the other wonderful cooks taking part this month, stroll on over say hi and tell em Brian sent you 🙂
