It’s true. There’s an heirloom variety of softneck garlic named after our very own MaryJane Butters (softneck means it does not produce a scape, making it ideal for weaving into garlic braids). It’s a rare variety that she slowly brought back into disease-free production over the course of 20 years. From 60 different varieties that she conducted field trials on, this one was in a standout league of its own—truly remarkable. It stores well into spring without sprouting, peels super easy, and each individual bulb is large and amazing to work with when cooking, plus it’s packed with flavor. It was originally found in the outback of Germany by Rich Hannan, the director of the Western Region U.S. Department of Agriculture Germ Plasma Bank, located right next door to us in Pullman, Washington. There truly is no finer softneck garlic than “Butters.”
