A beautiful richness of our Quebec heritage, this shallot is perfectly resistant to our winters, and can be cultivated sustainably. We harvest the new shoots in spring which will be eaten like regular shallots, and then, once the plant has multiplied, we harvest the bulbs towards the end of June to dry them for a month. This is how around July 26, the feast of St. Anne in the Catholic religion, the bulbs will be ready to be consumed or replanted.
