And....a recipe! I didn't have raspberries, so it was just all plum.....but it was still really yummy. If you make it, be sure to use red plums.

Plum Raspberry Crumble

2 pounds red plums, cut in 1/2, pitted, and cut in 1-inch wedges
2/3 cup granulated sugar, divided
1 1/4 cups flour, divided
2 tablespoons orange juice
1/2 pint fresh raspberries
1/3 cup light brown sugar, packed
1/4 teaspoon salt
8 tablespoons (1 stick) cold unsalted butter, diced
1/2 cup quick-cooking oats
1/2 cup sliced almonds, plus extra for sprinkling

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

2. In a large bowl, combine the sliced plums, 1/3 cup of the granulated sugar, 1/4 cup of the flour, and the orange juice and toss well. Add the raspberries and toss lightly. Pour into a 9 by 12 by 2-inch baking dish.

3. For the topping, place the remaining 1 cup of flour, the remaining 1/3 cup of granulated sugar, brown sugar, oats, and the salt in the bowl.

4. Cut in the butter and until the butter is the size of peas.

5. Add 1/2 cup of the almonds and mix well.

6. Spread the topping evenly over the plums, making sure the fruit is covered. Sprinkle with some extra almonds. Bake for 40 minutes, or until the fruit is tender and bubbly and the topping is golden brown.
