Peach Conversion?

All of my peach cobbler recipes call for canned peaches... Right now it is Peach Season.. so I am SWAMPED with FRESH peaches ( I LOVE this time of year!)....
How many cups of peaches should I use per 29oz can of peaches...

and should I add sugar to them?...

if so How much?

I'd guess about 3 to 4 cups of peaches. Too many won't matter, but too few might ruin the cobbler. The right amount should be obvious when you fill your pan -- save any leftover peaches to have with cereal or ice cream.

I wouldn't add sugar if they're really sweet, but otherwise I might add a small amount. Taste should tell.

I would add just a bit of sugar to make the juices run. Most any canned peach can tells you how many servings and you could determine how many fresh peaches you need by that.

AT least 4C, because they will cook down more than canned peaches. There are certainly a lot of peach pie/cobbler recipes around. Why not try one. And do put some sugar that you have mixed with some flour (for thickening). Almond extract works very well with peaches.
