Ajvar recipe

This traditional Serbian roasted red pepper sauce is a nod to all-court superstar Novak Djokovic.

A delicious accompaniment to barbequed meats, it’s perfect for mixing up a big batch and refrigerating in an airtight container for up to two weeks – just enough time to see you through the Open!

  • 3. Blend peppers, eggplant and garlic together and add oil, vinegar and salt. Transfer to a saucepan and bring to a simmer, then reduce and cook for 30 minutes. Stir through salt and pepper to taste. Cool and serve.
