Shallots facts and health benefits

Shallots drying process

Shallots are ready to harvest when the tops turn yellow and fall over. To harvest shallots, gently pull them out of the ground and shake off any excess soil. Do not wash or peel the shallots, as this can damage their skins and reduce their shelf life.
To dry shallots, you need a well-ventilated and shady place, such as a shed, a garage, or a porch. Avoid direct sunlight, as this can cause the shallots to lose their color and flavor. You can use one of the following methods to dry shallots:

Using an electric dehydrator. An electric dehydrator is a device that uses heat and air to dry food quickly and evenly. It can be used to dry shallots in a few hours or days, depending on the model and settings. To use an electric dehydrator, cut off the tops and roots of the shallots and peel off the outer skins. Slice the shallots thinly and spread them on the dehydrator trays in a single layer. Set the temperature to 50°C or 120°F and dry the shallots until they are crisp and brittle.

Drying is an essential step in preserving and storing shallots. It helps to prevent moisture loss, spoilage, and sprouting that can affect the quality and flavor of the shallots. It also helps to enhance the sweetness and aroma of the shallots by concentrating their sugars and oils. Properly dried shallots can be stored in a cool and dry place, such as a pantry, a cellar, or a jar.
