How to Store Shallots

Save

The delicate, oniony flavor of shallots makes them a good choice for dishes where you want to add flavor but don't want to overpower the natural flavor of other ingredients. These tiny morsels work for adding a touch of flavoring to omelets or fried potatoes. If you want a more subtle flavor, choose smaller shallots, because the larger they grow, the stronger they taste. When properly stored, shallots can last up to six months in a cool area.
