Plum and Ginger Crumbles

Plum and Ginger Crumbles

Harvest season! There is nothing like it! I am so fortunate that my parents have such a bounteous and beautiful fruit orchard that they have grown and nurtured for so many years. This time of year there are apples, plums, prunes and pears to be had. I managed to get a few very precious plums that are such a gorgeous color as well. 

I imagined that these amazing plums would pair really well with ginger, and boy was I right! I really love the concentrated flavor of crystallized ginger and I was able to find some at a bulk section at a local grocery store.  

I decided to keep the fruit part simple, just the ginger and a small bit of coconut sugar to let the tartness of the plums shine. Then, a sweetened & spiced oat topping to give the crumbles a bit of crunch. Perfect! 

I hope that you will join me in making this amazingly yummy dessert soon! Let me know how it turns out in the comments below!
