Summer fruit is delicious, and summer fruit from a friend's garden is even sweeter.
A great friend with a green thumb (Dana Hughes you know who you are!) recently gifted me with a basket full of ripe plums and I was thrilled. The only "catch" if you will, was too much of a good thing. We weren't eating them fast enough!
Enter the fruit flies...pesky little harbingers of fruity doom.
It could only mean one thing: time for a crumble.
Using an amazing recipe for Plum Raspberry Crumble from Ina Garten's Barefoot in Paris cookbook I baked up a crumble with my own special twist: I doubled the crumble!
It felt sort of naughty and decadent. It's getting kind of wild & crazy in the kitchen, right?
But, let's be honest it's everyone's favorite part.
My little experiment worried me, until we got to taste it. It might be too much crumble for some folks, but for this family you can see the results for yourself below.
