I love to add them to my salads, they have a great flavor and are crunchy.
These are not shallots, they are tiny onions
These are not shallots, they are in fact miniature white onions. An absolute nightmare to peel and slice, and they taste, well, just like onions. Either Tesco are too dumb to know what shallots really are, or they think we the customers are too dumb to know the difference.
Good quality but rather hot for Shallots which are
Good quality but rather hot for Shallots which are a very mild onion - so how can they actually be shallots??
OK shallots in varying sizes
These are OK, but my recipe used whole ones, so I was hoping they would be all roughly the same size. In practice they varied right through from the smallest, weighing only 10g (not much bigger than a pea) right through to one weighing a massive 78g. Not particularly important I suppose, but the finished dish didn't look as pretty as I had hoped.
Lovely quality and great price. They made superb home made picked onions. Really crunchy.
Once again Tesco discontinue selling an excellent product, and replace it with a vastly inferior product of their own. These were tiny and of terrible quality. Even on the day of delivery, with lots of time on their sell-by date, most of the contents of the packet were so substandard that they went straight into the bin I cannot recommend these.
Raw they're very spicy

Half the shallots in the bag were bad and had to throw away most of them.
Lincolnshire shallots produced in the Netherlands?
"Our shallots come from trusted growers across the UK. One of our growers, the Kitchen family, have been growing Shallots for Tesco in the light, sandy soils of their north Lincolnshire farm for over 25 years.".... ...."Produce of The Netherlands"?
Went in store and bought two packets for pickling. English grown shallots. Skinned them when I got home and all of them were firm and fresh. I didn’t have to throw any away. I have been pickling home grown and shop bought produce for several years and the ones I bought today were good quality. That was my experience judging by the reviews other people have had different experiences. My only advice would be to go in store and personally check them to see if they are firm and in good condition before buying.
