Last night I was traipsing around the garden looking for additions to our quiche dinner and spied the shallots begging to be pulled. After making a small pile a rather enthusiastic little decided to help and before I could show him what was what, half of the onions were pulled up. All are now drying or curing to make shallot and onion braids. It has been a secret dream of mine to have braided onions but felt I should make a braid rather than purchase one. Keeping an eyeball of the onions to make sure they are curing properly and an eyeball on my enthusiastic gardener.
