As members of the onion family, Melissa’s Organic Shallots are tender in texture, mild in flavor (less pungent than the onion), and quick cooking. Since each head is made up of several cloves, Shallots often resemble garlic rather than onions. Covered with a thin, paper-like skin.

Organic Shallots are preferred for reasons of taste, health and the environment. Melissa’s Organic Shallots make excellent additions to sauces and salads.

Use the same method to select Organic Shallots as you would in selecting onions. Melissa’s Organic Shallots should be firm, heavy for size, with dry, papery skins. When selecting Shallots, avoid any signs of moisture, green shoots or dark spots. Keep in mind humidity breeds spoilage in Shallots. Store whole Shallots in a cool, dry place with good air circulation for up to one month (depending on condition when purchased). Once cut, tightly wrap any unused Shallot in plastic, refrigerate and use within four days.
