Burgers are a barbecue staple, and these Pork and Apple Burgers are a great way to change up the usual BBQ fare. The flavours in this recipe may seem a little unusual but don’t be put off by the fennel seeds – the little pop of aniseed works so well with the pork, without being too overbearing. Add to that the tanginess of the apple, and you have one mega mouthwatering burger. You could even top it with apple sauce for extra flavour!

For rustic handmade patties, press these burgers into shape by hand. Or why not use a burger press for an even more professional look.
