A member of the allium family, shallots are similar to onions, but have a sweeter, milder taste. They suit most spots you'd cook with an onion, but more so rich, hearty dishes.

Shallots have some powerful phytonutrients, most notably various organosulfur compounds which provide antifungal, antiviral and antibacterial effects. These compounds have also been associated with reduction in allergy symptoms, plus benefits to blood circulation.
