This weeks burger combo is a mixture of seasonal and local flavours. I had been out to my sisters place recently and she had given me quite a bit of rhubarb from her garden. I love rhubarb but tend to think of it as a dessert/sweet item not a savoury one. So with making homemade sauces lately I decided to add rhubarb to a barbecue sauce and as always was pleased with the flavour.
I also made a remoulade sauce with bits of herbs and a couple of pickles left in a jar. That recipe is also included here.
