French Echalion Shallots, also known as Banana Shallots are full-flavored, and because of their long shape, they cook quickly and are very easy to peel.
French Echalion (Banana) Shallots are covered with a thin, paper-like skin that can range from pale brown or light gray to a soft rose. Once exposed, the ivory shallot is usually marked by a pale green or purple color. Since each head is made up of several cloves, shallots actually resemble a clove of garlic rather than an onion.
As members of the onion family, Melissa’s French Echalion Shallots are tender in texture with a milder flavor than other onion varieties. The delicate flavor of these shallots complements sauces and salad dressings, and they may be substituted for onions in all your favorite recipes.
