Harvesting Shallots in Songan

Being born and bred in bustling city like Surabaya, spending the holiday with their grandparents in Songan, Kintamani, Bali offers a much needed break for my children. Different weather and different environment gave them a lot of opportunities to learn and experience new things.

This time around they got a chance to join their grandparents to harvest shallots in their field. Shallots are an important produce for Balinese and Indonesian in general as it is used as seasoning in almost every dish. In Bali, Shallots are also eaten raw as condiment.

My two girls are really excited to harvest the shallots. Its not that hard to pull them from the ground. The difficult part is actually judging whether the shallots should be pull at that time or it should be left to grow for a couple more days. But their dad and grandparents pointed out which part to pull. So in the end they did really well.
