Shallots sprouted--too late for carmelized shallot rings?

That pretty much says it all.

I didn't get to the shallots before they sprouted little green tips.

I'd intended to slice into rings and fry in oil until golden brown--so yummy!

Will it still work, or should I use them for sauteed and other cooking and get a fresher batch for the carmelizing?

  1. They will still work.

      1. Or plant them and have delicious green shallots in a few weeks.
