The abundance of fresh ripe berries is one of the pleasures of summer. Each variety in the seasonal trinity. Blackberries, blueberries, and raspberries - works beautifully in this recipe. Remember to treat fresh berries gently after purchase if not using them immediately. Store them for up to 2 days in the refrigerator. Rinse the berries briefly in a colander before use, then pick over the berries and discard any that are moldy or mushy. Let dry in a colander or on a layer of paper towels.

Let's not wait for another day when you will find all your summer berries moldy and mushy inside your refrigerator. Upon buying them, Blackberry Muffins should be the first recipe that's inside your mind so that your berries will not be left untouched for days.

This muffin recipe is based on Peach Melba, a classic dessert with fresh poached peach halves filled with vanilla ice cream. Topping the ice cream is a raspberry sauce - called "Melba Sauce" - and a sprinkling of toasted almonds. The dish is the gustatory hand work of the legendary French chef Auguste Escoffier, who created the combination in the late 1800s to honor Dame Nellie Melba, the most popular opera star of the day, who ate in his restaurant. The combination of sweet peaches and tart raspberries is a delectable treat.

This Peach Melba Muffins recipe will not be a treat to honor anybody else but to honor the best cook in you.   It will be your moment to shine after baking these muffins to perfection!
