2 lbs red plums: cut in half, remove pit and then cut into 1-inch wedges
2/3 c granulated sugar: to be divided
1 1/4 c all-purpose flour: to be divided
2 tbsp orange juice

Make The Topping

  • Use the remaining flour, granulated sugar, the brown sugar, and the kosher salt and mix in a food processor, using the steel blade.
