Plum Crumble

August 9, 2009 | Desserts, Fruit

I’ve been waiting for this day all summer – the first ripe plums off my tree in the front yard!!!
During the early summer in Denver we had a nasty hail storm that knocked off what I thought were all the plums on the tree. They were only little green fruits at the time, about the size of a small olive, and as I cleaned up my yard from the storm I counted over 100 fallen plums.I nearly cried right there in the front yard. But over the next few days I noticed that actually the tree was quite heavy still with plums, so I crossed my fingers and started dreaming of plum recipes.
As the weeks wore on, the plums grew larger and began turning purple, including this cluster of at least a dozen or more dangling from one the delicate top branches.
When the plums start to turn this darker purple-blue color and begin to soften, they are ready. Have any great recipes for plums? Share them with me and I’ll publish them for blog readers to enjoy. In the meantime, here’s an adaptation of my apple or peach crumble using plums.

Plum Cobbler
Serves 6

cooking spray
12 plums, cut in quarters
2 cups whole oats
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 stick butter
1 teaspoon cinnamon

Spray an 8 x 8 baking dish with cooking spray then add plums. Mix oats, sugar, brown sugar and cinnamon with the butter, working the topping until the butter is well incorporated. Pour over the top of the plums and bake at 350 degrees until plums are softened and bubbling and the topping is lightly browned, about 30-40 minutes.
