We had a lot of plums this year, all from one Victoria tree (this is the tree I’ve nearly killed plenty of times).
We’ve made lots of plum jam but we quickly had to get a move on as they were rotting in the fridge so I made a plum crumble. It seems to have been a hit and here is the recipe if it tickles your tastebuds…
Victoria Plum Crumble
For the fruit: -1kg Victoria plums, de-stoned -3tbsp granulated sugar
For the crumble: -110g plain flour -55g granulated sugar -170g salted butter
- Preheat the oven to 180C.
- Place the fruit at the base of an ovenproof dish. Sprinkle the sugar generously over the top, and mix it in.
- In a bowl, using your fingers, rub the flour, sugar and butter together, so that the mixture resembles large breadcrumbs. Scatter the crumble over the top of the fruit.
- Place the dish in the oven and cook for about half an hour, until the fruit is hot and bubbling and the crumble is golden brown.
- Serve warm. Keep in the fridge for up to three days.
