Honeyed Ginger Plum Crumble


8-10 ripe plums, halved and stone removed
4 tablespoons honey, I uses a floral scented honey
30g crystallized ginger, finely chopped 
1/2 teaspoon fresh ginger, very finely chopped
100g spelt flour
75g butter
75g Muscavado Sugar
50g Pecans, chopped


  1. Pre-heat oven to 200 degrees C. Using just a smidgen, lightly butter a heatproof form.

  2. Place the plum halves in a saucepan, drizzle with honey and add the finely chopped ginger. Allow to simmer for just about 5-8 minutes so that the fruit is slightly soft but still hold their shape.

  3. Stir in the crystallized ginger and transfer mixture to the heatproof form. Spread evenly.

  4. In a large bowl, rub together the butter into the spelt flour until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Stir in the sugar until evenly distributed. Finally toss in the chopped pecans.

  5. Evenly spread the crumble mixture over the fruit and bake in the oven for approx. 15 minutes until the top is a lovely golden color.

  6. Remove from oven, allow to sit for a few minutes, then serve with either a vanilla custard, vanilla sauce, or ice cream
