“Ruby-red Plum and Amaretti Crumble” from “Nigellissima”

Anna: When did you make this Kirstin?

Kirstin: Last night, when I made that roast chicken and pepper recipe again.

Anna: And what was your verdict?

Kirstin: I wished the plums had been riper, but that’s not Nigella’s fault.

Anna: I didn’t have very ripe plums either, but it didn’t seem to matter. It may have been because I cooked the plums earlier and they sat in their sugary, buttery juices for a few hours.

Kirstin: They looked beautiful didn’t they?

Anna: They did indeed. And I’m a sucker for amaretti biscuits so I loved the crumble.

Kirstin: Do you think a splash of alcohol in the plums would have been good?

Anna: I was just about to say that. Amaretto. Yum yum yum.

    This looks so good. I have some plums and amaretti biscuits so I think this will be my pudding tonight! :-)

      You must! Just make sure you have some icecream or custard to cut through the richness. It’s lush.

        My plans were thwarted when my children ended up eating all the plums lol :-) But I will definitely be making this. Loving Nigelllissima, some great recipes.
