Northridge Estate Fruit

Northridge Estate will have their beautiful nectarines available at the market this weekend, as well as plums and their divine rich lady peaches.



Peach and plum crumble

Here is a great recipe for a yummy dessert that you can make using fruit from Northridge Estate:

Prep time: 10 mins       Cook time: 15 mins     Total time:  25 mins     Serves: serves 2-3



  • ⅓ cup whole rolled oats
  • ⅓ cup chopped pecans
  • ¼ cup flour (any kind): spelt, oat, whole wheat, all purpose, or a gf blend
  • ⅓ cup brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • pinch of salt
  • 3 tablespoons butter, vegan butter, or hardened coconut oil (plus more for the skillet)
  • 4 peaches, sliced
  • 4 plums, sliced



  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F and brush a medium cast iron skillet (or an 8″x8″ baking dish), with a little coconut oil or butter.
  2. Use a food processor to pulse the oats, pecans, flour, sugar, cinnamon, and salt together. Add the butter or coconut oil and give it a few short pulses until the the crumbly mixture clumps together. If it’s too dry, add a little water, a teaspoon at a time. If it’s too wet, add a little more flour.
  3. Place the sliced peaches and plums into the skillet, sprinkle the crumble mixture on top and bake until the topping is golden brown and the fruit is soft, about 15-18 minute
  4. set cool slightly & serve with ice cream.
