Freeze Dried Shallots Q&A
What are dry shallots?
Freeze dried shallots have all the flavor of fresh shallots, but have been chopped, dried and frozen. Sometimes, cooking with dry shallots can be easier than using fresh. Reconstitute by covering with equal parts water to shallot or use as-is in longer cooking processes.
How do dried shallots compare to fresh shallots?
Dried shallots hold the same flavor of fresh shallots, and are quite comparable in place of fresh -- especially when working with less time in the kitchen.
How do you use dried shallots when cooking?
Use dried shallots in longer cooking processes, like when making soups or sauces. Add to bread recipes, or reconstitute in water and add to roasted vegetables. You can also grind them up in a shallot powder for cooking use!
How much dried shallots should you substitute for fresh shallots?
Substitute fresh shallots with dried shallots by using about half as much dried shallots as you would with fresh.
