Recipe by Sydney Mike
While searching for a peach recipe I came upon this one that can be made any time of year, using either fresh or frozen peaches. A comforting kind of Southern-style recipe! If using frozen peaches, thaw & sugar them to taste.

Very nice, Syd! Made as posted except the timing-- I had ours in the water bath for at least 70 minutes and it is still pretty liquidy on bottom. Wonder if the depth of the casserole has something to do with it needing more time-mine was a deep dish. Made for Everyday Is A Holiday.
