    Nice move, maneuvering us to talk of beets. You're wrong, of course, they are fantastic.

    i love them.
    maybe you should try roasting them?
    i had the most incredible duck dish when i was in new york, and it came with whole, roasted shallots and they were very mild and delicious.

    Now I'm really confused. The pics look like red onions - are they called shallots in the US or is there a different type of red onion (like the ones used in Greek salad)? I only know of the long green spring onion things which I use in tabouli.

    per wiki:

    In Australia, the term "shallot" can also refer to scallions (from various species of Allium), while the term "eschalot" is used there to refer to the shallot described here.

    And this is a plain ole red/purple onion, like in Greek salad. Much fatter & round.
