A great alternative to garlic!
Never again pay expensive store prices for shallots! An Allium, like onions, garlic, and leeks, shallots are sweeter and more productive than onions, their subtle flavor making them a favorite of chefs. Shallots, which generally produce a reddish-brown bulb, are best planted in fall and can be grown much like garlic, as they require very little effort and space. From French to Dutch yellows and reds to larger frog-leg and bananas to organic varieties, shallots are many and delicious, bringing delicate, spicy flavor to any dish!
