    Can I use canned peaches in place of fresh?

    I have a sour cream peach pie recipe that calls for fresh peaches.

    Do you think I can replace the peaches I canned last year for the fresh ones? The pie actually only bakes for 20 minutes, so I am assuming I could also cut my bake time?

    Ideas anyone?

    TIA

    I'm not the expert, but, allowing for any sugar you used in the canning process, I wouldn't see why not. I'd be careful about reducing the bake time, though, if it's mostly for the crust... hopefully, someone with more experience/knowledge than I will jump in soon.

    what about using frozen peaches? Those are unsweetened and if thawed wouldn't mess with either sugar or baking time...

    I thought of using frozen, but thought maybe the ones I canned would taste better. HMMMM!

    If I use the frozen, should I thaw them first?

    I would think so, but it depends on the recipe. Since you said it is a pie I would let them defrost on a colander on the sink so it would defrost and drain at the same time; sometimes too much moisture is not desired on certain recipes.
    Let us know what you decide and if turned out good!

    I would use frozen in place of fresh and no I wouldn't thaw them.
