    Hi! Just a question! Roughly how many peaches do you expect to be used for this if we are talking medium sized peach? I’m thinking about doing a smaller batch 🙂

    Looks AMAZING!!! Thank you!!!

      Hello there, if you are using a large slow cooker it will take between 8 to 10 peaches. If you are to use a large roaster oven it will be roughly a box of peaches weighing between 20 to 25 pounds.
