We once lived in a house with a scraggly peach tree in the backyard. Each year, I would pick the peaches when they were still not quite ripe in order to save them from the birds. We used them for peach jam. This recipe for under ripe fried peaches would have been delicious! Hopefully a few readers have some peaches just about ready for frying…
