The Italian plum is a sweet dark purple stone fruit that has a firm amber sweet flesh.  It is commonly planted in the Pacific Northwest and is so productive that their fruit is generously shared by its growers.

The Best Plum Crumble Ever (serves 6)


12 Italian plums, halved and pitted

2 tablespoons maple syrup

1 1/2 tablespoons arrowroot powder

1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon ginger

pinch of sea salt

1/2 teaspoon vanilla


1 cup fine almond flour (not almond meal)

1/2 cup coconut sugar

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon sea salt

1 egg beaten

1/2 cup unsalted grass-fed butter


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Lightly grease a 9 inch pie pan.  Place plums cut side up in prepared pie plate.

In a small bowl stir together arrowroot, cinnamon, ginger and pinch of salt.  Add the maple syrup and vanilla and stir mixture together until smooth slurry is formed.  Pour over cut side of plums and massage on fruit until plums are completely coated.

Combine almond flour, coconut sugar, baking powder and sea salt in a medium sized mixing bowl.  Mix well.  Add the beaten egg, stirring with a fork until mixture is completely combined.

Using a teaspoon, drop small spoonfuls over filling, distributing the topping evenly. Once topping is on,  dip spoon in melted butter once to grease it and spread topping with the back of the greased spoon, filling in the gaps.  By greasing the spoon, it keeps the topping from sticking to the spoon, making spreading easier.

Pour melted butter over entire crumble.  Set on a baking sheet to catch any drippings and bake for 20-25 minutes, or when top is golden and filling is bubbling.
