Shallots combine the sweetness of an onion with a mild garlic flavor. They're an essential ingredient for many sauces, soups, dressings, and stews, giving them a caramelized and umami undertone. We also love them pickled or fried as a topping for Southeast Asian dishes.
The majority of store-bought shallots are grown and trucked in from the South, where cheap labor is exploited to drive down the cost of the crop. The shallots are grown in poor soil that relies on harmful chemical fertilizers.
Locally-sourced, organically-grown shallots grown in nutrient-rich soil retain their anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties and taste superior to their conventionally-grown counterparts.
I love having a one-stop shop though Local Roots! It makes grocery shopping so much easier and more pleasant!
