"This has a great tartness to it. My husband normally only likes rhubarb desserts for the tartness but he said this was a keeper! Perfect with a scoop of ice cream for a bit of sweetness."

"Very tasty crisp! The slight sourness of the plums pairs nicely with the sweet topping and a scoop of vanilla ice cream. I grew up eating rhubarb crisp, but there is not any fresh rhubarb in my current area. This is a nice substitute!"

"Go light on the nutmeg. You might as well mix it in to the topping instead of sprinkle it on the plums."
