I have revised this recipe. Cooks have told me it has been too juicy. When it is time to fill a pie shell,(if you desire) you can peel two apples and add sliced apples to this filling or raisins and nuts if you wish.Sprinkle 1/4 cups flour and 8 dots of butter before adding top crust. If you don't want a top crust,I have added recipe for oatmeal crunch crust.(Due to juicyness of some peaches i have revised this recipe and hope you now do not have any problems with it. Also slice your peaches at least 1/2 inch slices in width or a little more.

I made this in mass quanties so I didn't have the too much liquid issues. I just added more peaches when I saw that I had more liquid left in the pan. I will say however that I was disappointed in the flavor. I can't pin point what exactly is off but something. I am going to make the crisp and see how that works with the filling - I will update my review then.

Like another reader, I was excited to try this out as it sounds wonderful. I was very disapointed in the results. Alot of liquid left over to start with. I even went so far as to double the amount of peaches on my last 2 batchs just to get enough peaches in the jar. It does taste great. I made them as Christmas gifts but it will take 2 jars just to get enough peaches (- the liquid of 1 jar).. I did make the pie and I took the suggestions of adding apples and nuts. What I ended up with was an apple pie with some peaches in it. It was good though.

Just canned this and it did not thicken up so I had to keep adding cornstarch. I did can Pints of plain peaches that I will add to the filling when I make a pie and hopefully it isn't so runny.
