Store Shallots For Months In A Frozen Plastic Bottle

Shallots are used in so many recipes, but unfortunately, they always come in big packs and you can't use them all before they go bad. The One Pot Chef has an easy trick to help you store them for months.

Simply chop up your shallots into small pieces and put them in a Ziploc bag or an empty, cleaned plastic bottle. Zip it up or put on the lid and throw it into the freezer. It will last for months.

A water bottle seems like a better idea than the Ziploc because you will be able to easily shake out the amount you need. They defrost in seconds. You could also use the white root ends to regrow shallots in a cup of water.

Quick Tips: Saving Leftover Spring Onions [The One Pot Chef]


    These are not shallots. You have pictures of spring onions. Shallots have much bigger bulbs or onion bits. They are different.

    Or is this an odd NSW *thing* you do?

    The video even calls them spring onions! Omg!

      Shallots / Spring Onions / Green Onions... it's one of those things where everybody calls them something different, and they all think that theirs is right. Maybe one for the grammar nazi column to investigate :-)

    or you can just cut a centimetre above the roots off and plant them in a pot on your windowsill for infinite spring onions.
