Onions - French Red Shallots - 5 oz
| • Store in a cool dry place, such as a root cellar or basement
• Stock up! Monica shows you how to keep your onions, garlic, and shallots fresh for months
|Shallots have actually become our top choice for most preparations calling for raw onions. They are sweeter and more mild than either yellow or red onions, and have a pleasant crispness in salad dressings and grain salads.
Shallots are also quite handy for when we only want a few tablespoons of onion for our dish. Because shallots grow in cloves, it's easy to break off just what we need, and the other cloves will still keep for several weeks. Plus, the thin layers of a shallot mean that mincing is a piece of cake!
Can you just swap in onion for shallot? Well, sure you can, but shallots have a really nice way of incorporating themselves more fully into sauces or custards (such as a quiche) whereas onions, even if chopped finely, will largely maintain their shape so you'll have little bits of onion in your recipe. When you're looking for the savory onion flavor without the chunks of onion, that's when you want shallots.
