A bin of shallots, small onions with a reddish interior and yellowish outer skin

These shallots were for sale at the Newark, Delaware farmer's market. Shallots can be tricky to find, and often expensive, but this market frequently stocks them for a very reasonable price.

I like shallots; their small size is convenient for cooking for one person or small groups, or for adding a small amount to a larger dish without having to store cut onions (which do not keep well). Shallots tend to have a rather strong and rich flavor, but I find it to be less biting than most onions.
