  • 1 cup chopped rhubarb
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 vanilla bean split
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons flour

In large bowl, toss together plums, rhubarb and lemon juice; set aside.

In small bowl, scrape seeds from vanilla bean into sugar; rub together until fragrant. Stir in flour, salt and cloves. Add to fruit mixture and toss to coat. Transfer to 8-inch (2 L) square baking dish.

Biscuit Topping: In bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Using pastry blender or 2 knives, cut in butter until in coarse crumbs. Using fork, stir in buttermilk to make soft, sticky dough. With spoon, drop in 9 evenly spaced mounds over fruit mixture.
