This recipe makes a succulent filling for your peach pie or cobbler. The combination of ingredients, and the baking technique are adapted from my grandmother's recipe.

- 1 1⁄2 cups sugar
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1⁄4 teaspoon nutmeg
- 6 tablespoons dry tapioca
- 1⁄2 cup butter, sliced in tbsp portions
- 2 tablespoons cinnamon sugar, mixture (mix to suit your taste. You might try 25% ground cinnamon to 75% sugar as a starting point. I mix up)
- Drain peaches, reserving 1 cup of syrup for recipe.
- Combine peaches, syrup, cinnamon, nutmeg & tapioca in large sauce pan.
- Bring mixture to a boil, and boil for one minute.
