Allium ? 2 out of 3 ain't bad.

My onions this year were huge and my garlic better than usual, but the shallots failed miserably.
The photo below shows examples. They're on a teaplate and that's a pound coin for size comparison.
I have 20 shallots, all this size - the question is - shall I chuck them away or what ?




I can grow veg like that! They'll be fine to eat, but just don't invite the local allotment champion round for tea!

Thanks for your input, Worthy, but what best to do with them ? I was looking forward to pickling some but I'd want about 19 on a plate to get the taste.

How do I say thanks?
