18 medium peaches, about 4 pounds; reserve fresh peach slices for garnish
1 cup sugar
1¼ cups flour, sifted
½ cup butter or margarine

Peel and cut peaches into quarters. Combine ½ cup sugar and 3 tablespoons flour, and mix with peaches. Put in a baking dish large enough for the amount of peaches (a 9-inch x 13-inch pan should work). Mix remaining sugar and flour. Add butter or margarine, and cut mixture to crumb consistency. Sprinkle crumbs over peaches. Bake at 375° for 1 hour or until done.
