Country Plum Crumble

MY GRANDMOTHER shared this recipe with me 30 years ago. It was one of her favorites, and it always earned her compliments. Now history has repeated itself! I've given this recipe to many friends and am delighted to share it with Reminisce readers. -Shari Dore, Brantford, Ontario

    This is the yummiest canned plum recipe. I have made it many times for my Mom and for my Hospice patients. It takes them back to their Mom’s cooking. Would highly recommend you try it! Thanks for the recipe!!!
