Remove the potato and the peach segments with a slotted spoon and put some of them in a layer in the prepared baking dish. Pour some of the syrup fro, the pan over the layer. Cut the butter into small pieces and use about 6 pieces to dot the layer, then sprinkle with some of the cinnamon and nutmeg. Repeat the layers until all the peach and potato mixture is used up.

Bake uncovered in the preheated oven for 35 to 40 minutes, or until the top turns brown and the liquid in the baking dish is well candied. 3. Serve hot with lots of whipped cream.
