One of the greatest gifts of the summer season must be peaches. Their sweet, juicy taste is undeniably good. But what do you do if you’re craving a peach and it’s not quite ripe? 

Peaches and other stone-fruit like nectarines, continue to ripen when they have been picked from the tree so ripening them at home is as simple as placing them in a brown paper bag. Pop the bag in a spot away from direct sunlight at room temperature. If you are in a hurry you can add a banana to the bag as the ethylene that bananas produce will hasten up the ripening process.
