Mike and I love all members of the onion family, and shallots are certainly no exception. And here is a link to a recipe that I found by Arwen O'Reilly Griffith that was so superior to any we'd had before. In fact, we were seriously thinking about re-doing the calendar based upon before and after this shallot recipe, except that we realized our previous life would be referred to as BS. Nope. Not gonna do it.
Try the shallots. You'll thank her!
