Shallots are often thought to be another variety of onion, but they are actually a species of their own. They grow in clusters, where separate bulbs are attached at the base and by loose skins. The shallot has a tapered shape and a fine-textured, coppery skin, which differentiates it from onions. Shallots were first introduced to Europeans during the 12th Century. Crusaders brought them home as valuable treasure from
the ancient Palestinian city of Ascalon.
Shallots have a mild taste that combines the flavor of a sweet onion with a touch of garlic. Try these recipes, and taste for yourself!
