Red Plum Crumble

Red Plum Crumble

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.

Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Place a large sauce pan on the stove top. Add the plums, 1/4 cup brown sugar, lemon juice and zest. Mix thoroughly.
  2. Bring the mixture to a boil, cooking the plums just until they soften. Their color will become a beautiful red.
  3. Place the cooked plums into a deep sided baking dish and set aside.
  4. For the crumble: In a large bowl add flour, oats, the other 1/4 cup of brown sugar, cinnamon and butter cubes. Using either a dough cutter or a fork, blend together.
  5. The mixture should be clumpy as pictured once ingredients for the crumble are blended.
  6. Pour over the cooked plums. Place on a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil. This saves your oven from a messy clean up in case the sugary juices boil over.
  7. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until the crumble is bubbling around the edges and the top is golden brown. Remove and allow to cool prior to serving.
