Slow Cooker Instructions
Add all the peaches and apples to a slow cooker. Add ⅓ cup of water. Set to high for at least 2 hours. Run through food mill if you didn't peel the fruit. If too thin, then place it back in the slow cooker with the lid off and continue cooking until desire consistency. 
Stove Top Instructions
Add all the ingredients to a large pot along with ½ cup of water. Bring to a boil. Reduce to simmer. Keep the lid off. Stir frequently so not to burn. If too dry, add more water. Run through food mill when you can easily smash the fruit with a large spoon, about 20 minutes.
