Depends on where your recipe comes from Lynn
For us and throughout Asia Shallots, once called Eschallots, come in bunches, green like so
or sometimes dried and come in clumps of bulbs like so
sometimes we see them like so
but these are not to be confused with Spring Onions
as we have the choice of both. My favourite way of using green Shallots is in mashed potato or egg dishes such as an omelet as they are much milder than Spring Onions.
