Shallots are sweet and mild, but also rich and complex.
Store in a cool, dark, dry place.
Ahhhh, the allium of all alliums! They add tremendous flavor to any dish. Shallots have a sweet flavor that is akin to garlic and onion.
These are so good that I stopped cooking with onions. The taste makes everything more complex and reach. I use shallots in my roasted potatoes dish, my sautéed greens, omelets..
