Company: Van Drunen Farms, Momence, IL
Ingredient Snapshot: Van Drunen Farms says its freeze-dried shallot can be incorporated into many recipes, including flatbread, bread and bagels. In the same family as onions and garlic, shallots are sweeter, and have a milder flavor than onion. Shallots also offer a complex after-note and spiciness that resemble garlic. VDF’s freeze-dried shallot makes production easier because it eliminates the need for peeling and preparation. It can be rehydrated and added to foods, or used in dry mixes.
