A more delicate alternative to a traditional onion. The Shallots at The Green Berry will fill your mouth with flavour, particularly hints of garlic. Perfect for those who do not like the harshness of an onion. Shallots have a delicate flavour, less intense than most onions and they also dissolve easily into liquids, which is why they are favoured for sauces. Skin shallots in the same way as onions, i.e. top and tail them and then peel off the outer skin. Pull apart the bulbs. Slice them carefully and thinly using a sharp knife - shallots are so small, it is easy to slip and cut yourself. When cooking them whole, fry over a very gentle heat without browning too much. Suitable for home freezing.
