After 7 days I added 6 pounds of canned peaches and 3 pounds of canned apricots to the primary. Also, I drained about half the cans of juice before adding and added the juice from the other half to the primary with the fruit. I then left it in this "secondary state" for 14 days. There was of course alot of trub and debris in the fermenter after this. If you're a clarity buff then I would probably rack to another fermenter after 14 days and leave it for a week or so, maybe cold crash.
Prime as normal and bottle. I poured one after 3 days (a little premature you think?), it was fairly light and clear, there's a good amount of peach aroma but not much peach flavors, hope it comes out over time. Will report back after a few weeks of bottle conditioning.
Oh and the name is a joke since we don't really grow peaches here, canned peaches are "Kansas peaches" to me
