Product Description

Our Organic Shallots are grown using organic farming methods which avoid the use of artificial fertilisers and avoid agrochemical pesticides.

Our finely layered shallots have a bright blemish free skin and are milder and sweeter than onions. Don't be tempted to substitute onions if the recipe calls for shallots, it won't be the same. Also great peeled drizzled in olive oil and roasted.

Serving Suggestion
For a tasty accompaniment, slice shallot in half (lengthways through the root) and chop off top and tail then peel. Thickly slice shallot (width-wise) and roast with a drizzle of olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Serve with a sprinkle of crumbled blue cheese and seasoning to taste.

Country of Origin
We're committed to buying British. When shallots are in season in the UK, we source from home. The rest of the year, when the British shallot is out of season, we source from trusted overseas suppliers.

Portion Size
3 Portions based on FSA recommended 80g.

Product Size
Average size 40mm diameter.

This is an Ocado product. Like everything in our range, it's good quality, sensibly priced and, of course, responsibly sourced.

I'm most upset

I was delighted when Ocado started stocking banana shallots because I had always hated having to risk limb if not life trying to tame those little rock hard globes. Recently they introduced an organic version which the picture shows to be banana shaped but smaller. "Ideal" I thought & when they were delivered they were perfect. So I ordered some more & this week they delivered some little round rock hard musket shot which you wouldn't want to drop into a glass bowl , so if I can't find anybody who's into civil war re-enactment, I'm going to throw them away & I've already ordered the so-called echalions.

Rating: 3 star out of 5

Disappointing

We bought these for the first time and wanted to cook with them on the day they were delivered. Although their use by date had a week left on it, most of the shallots were soft on the outside and we had barely anything left that we could use. Possibly a bad batch due to weather conditions but I will go back to buying the banana shallots now as they are always good.

If you find that the soup is too thick after you have blended, pour in a little water to thin out the liquid - alternatively you can pour the soup through a fine meshed sieve.
