Shallots are a member of the large onion family. Their taste is not as strong as white onion, but more of a cross between a sweet onion and mild garlic. Used extensively in French cooking, shallots have become a standard ingredient in many sauces because of their unique flavor. In the United States shallots have become equally popular and are used in soups, sauces, breads, meat fish, pork, and vegetable dishes.

Many historians surmise that De Soto brought shallots to the United States during his Louisiana explorations.

We find working with shallots to be a bit time consuming and tedious so we offer you a freeze dried, chopped product with all the flavor of fresh shallots. Reconstitute by covering with equal parts water to shallot or use as-is in longer cooking processes.

Shallots originate from West or Central Asia.
"I just wanted to say thanks for the awesome website. A friend sent me your website and I was like a kid in a candy store seeing your wide variety of spices, salts, herbs, etc. Being someone that's not extremely well versed in what I'd consider 'exotic' ingredients, it was an absolute pleasure to see the products' history, uses, taste and general information. Just wanted to voice my appreciation. Thanks so much!"
