*You can make this recipe with canned or even frozen peaches. We highly recommend using fresh peaches or frozen before resorting to canned for the best results. If using fresh peaches, this will be roughly 6-8 baseball-sized peaches. If you use canned peaches, drain before incorporating into recipe. Regardless of which peaches you use, use 28 ounces for this recipe.
