Add smoky flavour to your burger with this sticky onion relish. Lily, one of our farm staff, loves this after a busy day on the farm!  A tip from the Royal Oak kitchen is to briefly toast the open burger buns in a hot, dry heavy-bottomed pan for a extra smokey hit (and stops the buns getting soggy).
