Pecans harvested early
I spend most of my time over at the cooking forum, but I've got a question better suited to this forum.
We had to trim some branches of our pecan tree off of our roof, and they were loaded with pecans starting to ripen, but most of them not quite ripe yet. We went ahead and picked those pecans anyway. We cracked one pecan that had the green part split away, and the pecan was very bitter and moist.
So, can anything be done to save these pecans for eating, or are they a lost cause? There are plenty more still on the tree, so it's not a total loss.
