Here's the perfect ending to a summer meal: a rustic home-style crumble made with juicy stone fruit. There's no need to peel the plums and nectarines—the skins soften as the fruit cooks and impart a lovely blush colour to the sauce. Serve warm with a scoop of ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream.

- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 3/4 cups all-purpose flour

MethodFruit Filling: Halve and pit plums and nectarines; cut into generous 1/2-inch (1 cm) thick wedges.
In large bowl, toss together plums, nectarines, honey, flour and vanilla. Scrape into 8-cup (2 L) oval casserole dish. Set aside.
Crumble Topping: In separate bowl, whisk together sugar, flour, oats and ginger. Using fingers, rub in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Using hands, squeeze mixture to form clumps. Sprinkle over plum mixture.
