A companion to green onions and green garlic, green shallots are a mild vegetable, harvested while the greens are still edible and before the bulbs mature. They can be used anywhere you would use green onion, or in place of green onion, for a mild shallot flavour. They love cold weather and can be planted in Michigan any time from March to September and are ready to harvest in 8 - 10 weeks. Expensive seed stock is better, but I do fine just planting the shallots I buy at oriental markets for $2 for a large bag. One good plan is to plant shallots close together and harvest every other one for green shallots and then let the rest go fully mature. Probably healthy for you and stuff, but who cares? They are cheap to grow, prolific, and delicious. My spring sautees usually include green onion, green garlic, and green shallot in equal proportion, for a complex, mellow, fresh tasting flavour base, for asparagus with morels to serve on pasta, for example.
