Long title right? But it's true. A friend of mine brought in a bag of these little gems one year and told me how to plant them, the first year I had a ton of them. I reseeded them as she told me how to by popping off the little cluster at the very top of the plant before I dug up the vegetable and sticking it in the ground again. I got so many that I then knew why she brought them in. So the next year I didn't reseed and guess what, that's right they came back anyway. So I decided to start using them and again big surprise they are delicious. So do I have your interest stirred a little? Have you already guessed? Well if you guessed shallots you would be right. I use them now in place of onions and they are so flavorful I don't know why I never used them before. Be sure after you dig them up and cut the long green stock off, to put them in a cool dry place to dry and then peel the parchment like covering off just like an onion and enjoy!
