Growing up in Texas, there were three fruits that were staples in the spring through the summer. Plums, Peaches, and Pears. The 3-P’s. Both my grandparents and parents grew these trees in their backyards. I always looked forward to seeing the fruits grow and waited in anticipation for them to ripen so that we could pick and eat them. Always trying to out run the birds! Oh, Grandma would make treasured jellies and jams and Momma would make cobblers. So good.
Besides preferring to pick them ripened straight from the tree, this Red Plum Crumble is a wonderful way to enjoy ripe red plums. The slightly sweet and tart combination is perfect to finish any meal. Heck, even a perfect start to your day for breakfast.
