Large, dark plums are in the stores now and are very sweet this year.  Despite the drought in California, the summer fruit this year is good.  Here is a recipe that uses plums (or just about any stone fruit, I think):


3/4 pound plums, pitted and sliced into thin wedges

1/2 cup sugar

1/2 teaspoon Chinese five spice powder

1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice

1/3 cup old fashioned rolled oats

4 tablespoons butter, diced

2 tablespoons plus 1-1/2 teaspoons flour

In bowl, toss plums with 2 tablespoons sugar, five spice powder and lemon juice.  Divide among 4 small ramekins.  In bowl, using fingertips, mix oats, butter, flour and remaining 6 tablespoons sugar with a pinch of salt; sprinkle on plums.  Bake at 425 degrees F until topping is golden and juices bubble, 15 to 18 minutes.  Makes 4.
