Q: Help! I just cut into a shallot and noticed milky white fluid coming from it.

Is it OK?

Editor: Jessica, yes, this is absolutely normal! There's no problem with the shallot. We've noticed this milky white liquid in some onions as well as shallots, and it seems to have no effect on the taste.

Readers, any clue on this liquid?
