Shallots are tastier than onions and milder than garlic. They can be substituted for both in your favorite recipes. French chefs in their costly gourmet cookery use these small, hardy, onion-like bulbs. Shallots are very expensive in the market -- more than the price of a good steak! However, they are easy to grow in your garden or in a pot on your windowsill. You can snip the green tops and use as you would chives. Plant shallots this year and use for your own gourmet dishes!

Plant shallots the same way you plant dry onion sets, spacing 4-6'' apart in the row in a furrow 1 to 1 1/2'' deep. If used as dry bulbs the shallots are lifted when the leaves have turned brown and left out on the ground for a few days to dry. Remove dead leaves and soil before storing in a cool dry place. If stored properly, the bulbs will keep from one season to the next and the small bulblets may be used for planting stock the following spring. Bulbs may be used for pickling. Approximately 30/lb. A 1/2 lb. plants a 7' row.
