If you're stuck with not-quite-ripe peaches, this is a fast (and delicious) way to turn them into dessert you can eat within minutes. Sautéing the fruit with lemon juice and sugar helps tenderize and sweeten it. The peaches are terrific on their own or with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and a few plain graham crackers.

Serves 2


  • 2 peaches
  • Juice of one medium- to large-sized lemon
  • 2 Tbsp. sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. butter


Halve and pit the peaches, and cut them into thick slices. Toss them with the lemon juice and sugar in a bowl. Melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat, then add peaches and cook for about 4 minutes, stirring occasionally. Serve plain or with vanilla ice cream and graham crackers.
