Roasting brings out the natural sweetness of shallots, a member of the onion family whose popularity can be attributed to French cuisine. Our blend begins with a pound of fresh shallots, which are roasted and combined with sweet and savory ingredients to bring out their flavorful character. Fresh shallots are slow-roasted to give them a smoky caramelized finish. Blended with red wine vinegar, brown sugar and salt for a balance of sweet and savory. A versatile addition to numerous dishes like roasted vegetables and pureed soups. Add to your favorite vinaigrette or stir into pan sauces. 8 oz.Made in USA. A Williams-Sonoma exclusive.
