Shallots have a mild taste that combines the flavour of a sweet onion with a touch of garlic. They can be used in similar dishes to ones where garlic and onions are used, but have a more subtle gourmet taste than onions and tend to have a faster cooking time. Some varieties of shallots are more elongated than others, while some are more rounded.
Products and Varieties
Shallots are the other significant crop that we have grown for many years. Planting several varieties means we can have supply throughout the season.
We have added peeled shallots to our offer to the Foodservice industry, to reduce another of those tedious jobs that everyone steers clear of.
Shallots are packed with dietary fibre, protein, vitamin C, potassium, folate, vitamin A, vitamin B6 and manganese.
This makes Shallots a great aid with circulation and metabolism. Further, they have been found to help decrease blood pressure.
