Buying Shallots

Look for:
shallots that are firm and heavy for their size. Smaller shallots have a milder taste than larger shallots.

Avoid:
shallots that are wrinkling, light for their size, sprouting, moldy, or have soft spots.

Seasonality: All year; peak seasons spring and summer

Storing Shallots

Store in a cool, dry, well-ventilated place up to a month.

Preparing Shallots

Peel the shallot skin with a paring knife, leaving the root end attached. Cut the shallot in half and place cut side down on a work surface. Cut horizontally towards the root and then crosswise into the size desired.
