Product Summary

We have always been a fan of the shallot. In fact, we were first to introduce them to UK supermarket shelves. Since then, we also introduced echalions to UK consumers, as well as traditionally strung UK shallots. You could say we are shallot innovators. As well as conventionally grown shallots, we also supply an organic alternative.

Shallots offer a lot of punch for their weight and size. They have a far higher sugar content than that of an onion which means they caramalise beautifully but be careful not to burn them on a hot heat. Our favourite way to enjoy them is to leave them in their skins and roast them whole. Once cooked, they then pop out of their skins and are simply sweet and delicious.

Seasonality

The British season for shallots starts in September and runs through until the following June.  The shallots are harvested, cured and then placed in controlled atmosphere buildings to maximise quality throughout the storage period.  We are always striving to extend the British season for as long as possible but never at the expense of quality.

Storage

Obviously the best way to store pickling onions is to pickle them! However if you would like to keep them for use in stews of casseroles, remove them from any packaging, particularly if it is plastic film and store in a cool, dry place. 

As one of only a handful of shallot growers in the UK, we are proud to support, UKShallot.com.
