Shallots are about to become your newest go-to secret ingredient. Raw or cooked, Yellow Shallots (Allium cepa var. aggregatum) are versatile, scrumptious, and perfect for foodies and cooks looking to elevate their dishes and tantalize their tastebuds.
Yellow Shallots are one of the more expensive produce products you can buy at the grocery stores. Unfortunately, it is worth growing your own. Growing shallots allows you to enjoy the process from the time you prepare your soil to the time you take your last bite of a well-cooked dish.
Yellow Shallots are known for their crisp texture and onion-zing that doesn't have the same after-burn as larger onion varieties. In any recipe that calls for onions, you can substitute Yellow Shallots for a richer flavor and crispness.
Shallots offer a bold flavor that will liven up any salad, sandwich, or another dish that calls for raw onion. They add a sweet, rich flavor when sauteed and alongside your favorite veggies or meat.
Like garlic, shallots produces multiple cloves per head. Yellow Shallots produce 3 to 4 cloves per head, which can be stored for future dishes after harvest.
For best performance, plant your Yellow Shallots in full sun. They prefer loose soil that drains well. Separate and plant your cloves an inch deep and 6 inches apart in rows one foot apart. Multiple bulbs will develop at the soils surface from the one bulb.
Lightly water around your shallots during dry spells, keeping the soil lightly moist but not wet. You can enjoy your shallots as green onions or wait for their bulbs to become full-grown.
Your Yellow Shallots will be ready when their leaves begin to die back and turn from yellow to brown. When they reach to the yellow phase, discontinue watering.
Yellow Shallots aren't just fun to grow, they're an unbeatable ingredient. Order yours in time to meet your zone's optimal fall planting time.
