It’s peach season in Shanghai and they are amazing! Not all fruit here tastes very good. I am yet to buy a delicious nectarine. Plums are hit and miss but peaches during peach season are TO DIE FOR! Goma Greens had peaches in the box last week and our driver brought us a box of freshly picked peaches, so my fridge was full of them! After 1 week of eating peach after peach I still had a few left so I decided to make a Peach Crumb Bars. However at the SAS (Shanghai American School) community fair, Haley and I had a Peach and Plum Pie that was sooooo good! We split it, but after 1 bite I didn’t want to share the rest. But I did… because she bought it!

Not only did I have fresh peaches at home, but I also had plums that were perfectly ripe to be added to the Crumb Bars. Instead of a plain Peach Crumb Bars, I was going to make Peach and Plum Crumb Bars.

But….

Christina from Goma Greens brought me over some Red Currants too! Red Currants are cute little red berries that are tart but still a bit sweet. I decided to throw them into the Peach and Plum Crumb Bars to add a tart element to it.

Plum, Red Currants and Peach Crumb Bars are so freaking delicious!

I made the crumble in a food processor. SO much easier than using a pastry blender. I hate those things! I don’t have the patience to fully cut in the butter so I end up with too many big butter chunks. My hand starts to cramp up and I give up. Blah… but if you use a food processor it is soooooo easy! You really cannot screw it up! Turn on the processor, and add the cold butter in pieces and process untiul crumblt. Then pricess an egg for moisture and boom! Your crumble is ready! No hand cramp!

The crumble is really good. I mean really good! I’m not a crust person at all but this crumb crust is incredible!! Buttery and sweet, but not too sweet. Mmm… just right!
