In a medium saucepan, cook apple, celery and onion in hot oil over medium heat for 6 to 8 minutes or until mixture is tender. Remove from heat; let cool to room temperature.
 
 
In a large bowl, combine apple mixture, ketchup, Jamaican jerk seasoning, salt and black pepper. Add bison; mix well. Shape mixture into six 3/4-inch-thick patties.
 
 
For a charcoal grill:
 
Grill patties on a well-oiled grill rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium coals for 14 to 18 minutes or until no longer pink (160 degrees ), turning once halfway through grilling. (For a gas grill: Preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Place patties on the well-oiled rack over heat. Cover; grill as above.)
 
 
Place toast on hot grill during the last 2 to 3 minutes or until lightly browned and toasted on both sides. Brush slices on both sides with melted butter.
 
 
Place Texas toast slices on 6 dinner plates. Top with leaf lettuce, burgers and some of the Cantaloupe and Strawberry Relish. Makes 6 burgers.
