Honey and Allergies

For a long time people have thought that eating local honey would help with allergies.  Unfortunately, it doesn’t appear that this is the case.  

There is a beautifully designed study performed by Dr. T.V. Rajan at the University of Connecticut where participants ate either local non-filtered honey, pasteurized honey or corn syrup with honey flavor.  Ten different allergy symptoms were measured.  There were no differences between the two groups that ate the honey and the group eating the placebo honey.

Turn on the broiler and cook for about 8 minutes longer. About every two minutes, spoon sauce over the fish.

About 1 minute before the fish is done, sprinkle fresh dill over the top of the fillets.
