Creative suggestions needed: what to do with 35 (possibly more!) unripe, rock-hard apricots?

These apricots give you brilliant opportunity to stand up for your right to hold and bear arms.


I realize such rare opportunities should not be sneezed at, Thomas.

But after much consideration I've decided I'd prefer to eat them instead.

What do unripe apricots generally taste like?


The one I tasted yesterday was actually rather nice. Firm, not tart & not yet sweet. Not yet ripe enough for the flesh to come away from the stone. Actually Idea a few slices might be quite good in a summer salad.

Another thought: I love nectarines, particularly the white (as opposed to the yellow) ones. But they tend to be sold locally either under-ripe, like little rocks, or over-ripe, verging on going "off'. I'm wondering if the banana/apple in the bag thing might do the trick with the under-ripe ones?

@msolga,
hey msO...

just a thought from the farm.

sometimes eating a lot of unripened fruit can lead to equestrian events in the loo...

Right. Right.

Duly noted, Rocky.

Heaven knows, there are enough challenges in life without coping with that, too! Razz

@Ragman,
If I have enough, ragman, why not?

Particularly the salsa.

@Philis,
Great idea, Philis, but the experts here tell me they're gonna need a little help with that.

Which they're getting. Smile
