The cousin to the family of leeks, garlic, spring onions and chives, Shallots are tall, green and willowy. From the bottom of the bulbs to the top of the hollow tube like leaves, chop, slice or shred them to release the onion flavour.
Health Benefits - An excellent source of vitamin C to go along with its distinct onion flavour.
Flavour - The smaller the shallot, the more mild the flavour. For a strong and garlic flavour, it is best to pick them when they are big and strong.
Availability - Available all year round with the peak season in Autumn/Winter.
Storage - Wrap shallots tightly in a paper towel and place them in the dry crisp area of the refrigerator. Do not place them in plastic as shallots will begin to sweat.
