nutty butty strawberry relish

This is a relish that you can serve both warm and cold. And it’s delicious. For the reason roasted pecan nuts, cream butter and strawberries do wonderfully well. This sweet sauce with texture does not need to be made by a chef. You can do it!

editor's note

A relish is a sauce. With ingredients that you cooked and pickled. This is a relish of grilled strawberries in cream butter. Mixed with lemon pickle and roasted pecan nuts. 30 Minutes, as prescribed in the instructions, have a bit of a stretch. So, in case, you feel confident to multitask. And have the strawberries grilled in the oven. Whilst you roast pecan nuts in a skillet. You can serve this warm sauce within 15 min. To eat with yoghurt in the morning. Or cold with ice late in the afternoon. PS you can make this relish on a bbq, grill or open fire. As long as you have a griddle at hand.
