1 lb of local shallots from Coaldale, AB. Ambition, a French red shallot this year. Shallots are favoured for their mild onion flavour, and can be used in the same manner as onions.
Very similar to onions in nutritional value. Expect high levels of flavenoids and polyphenols from these shallots. Rather than degrade when cooked, many of these nutrients seep into the water, or oils, that the onions are cooking in.
