“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.
