The shallot (Allium cepa) is a member of the onion family. Shallots are best described as a cross between a garlic and an onion. This is a top quality product and it takes 18 pounds of fresh shallots to produce 1 pound of Dried Shallots. For those busy cooks, our Dried Shallots are ideal.
It is believed that Shallots are most likely indigenous to Central or Southeastern Asia. Travelers ultimately introduced shallots into the eastern Mediterranean and India. Our Dried Shallots are from China.
