Plum Oat Crisp

Plum Oat Crisp, originally uploaded by cupcakelady.

This was a really great treat. I think I added too many plums. Which is why the red overflowed onto the oat crisp. It was hard to judge how many of these tiny plums made 2.5 lbs. This is what was in the recipe. The best part about the crisp was the cardamom. Everyone I had over (neighbors B, G, K and L's boyfriend D) had an odd initial reaction to the flavor. I think the mix of the tartness of the plums mixed with the cardamom confused their taste buds. In the end, I got rave reviews. I still have a ton of plums to use and the tree my neighbor has is still producing more fruit. We should be getting those in the next few days. I wish I had my Mom's canning (sp?) ability. She makes this incredible plum jam. I am just not set up to can yet. It's quite an investment so I've heard. In the meantime, I'll be trying a plum galette, plum and peach gelatin, plum popsicles, and roasted plum strudel.

Oh and I failed to mention the crisp is best served warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Just delicious!
