MaryJane Butters Biography:

Lessons gleaned from MaryJane Butters’ diverse pioneering background, from carpenter to dairy owner to former wilderness ranger turned organic farmer, led her eventually to stewardship of the 4-story, historic Barron Flour Mill. It was only natural that her years spent living on remote Forest Service fire-watch towers with only a living, breathing sourdough “mother” for companionship would lead her to write a pioneering wild-yeast bread book. She is the author of eight books; editor of MaryJanesFarm magazine, now in its 18th year of publication; and lives on an organic farm in Idaho. Two of her grown children and their spouses are employed full-time at her farm and she is “Nanny” to half a dozen grandchildren.

    Cowgirl Romance, Backyard Cow Keeping, Farmstyle Meals and Cheese Recipes from Mary Jane Butters

    MaryJane Butters wants YOU to have a cow—that “pet” cow you’ve always dreamed about. You know, that gorgeous beau-vine you’ve seen grazing outside your “cow”girl kitchen window. Of course, you’ve wondered what it would feel like to bring a bucket of fresh milk into your kitchen and turn it into butter, your own yogurt, sour cream, and artisan cheeses like Manchego and Brie. MaryJane’s fifth book, Milk Cow Kitchen, is one part milk cow how-to, one part cookbook (75 fuss-free, farmstyle recipes, in addition to 15 step-by-step, super simple cheese-making recipes), and three parts play!

  • MaryJane’s Cast Iron Kitchen

    By author: MaryJane Butters
    Product Code: 48031
    ISBN: 978-1-4236-4803-1

    Description & More Details

    Whether we’re urban or suburban, straight-up city or downright country, cast-iron cookware holds a special place in our hearts. For generations, it’s the one thing that has never changed. Or worn out. With its rich history and formidable staying power, who among us doesn’t have at least one of Grandma’s skillets?

    Not only is it cheaper than its modern-day, fancy-pants counterparts, it’s non-toxic. And if your great-granmama were around to utter admonitions, she’d tell you a thing or two about proper kitchenware (and manners), and then hand you a cast-iron griddle and show you how to make a mess of biscuits the likes of which you’ve never tasted before.

    From Asparagus and Mushroom Quiche with Potato Crust to Chicken and Biscuit Skillet Pie to Ham Dinner on the Half Peel to Rhubarb-Raspberry Pandowdy, MaryJane’s unpretentious recipes for breads, breakfasts, soups, casseroles, main dishes, and pies and other desserts that include step-by-step instructions accompanied by beautiful color photography will make you feel as if you were sitting with her in her farmhouse kitchen in the outback of Idaho.

    Preparing meals in this tried-and-true cookware just got easier with MaryJane’s farmhouse recipes and cooking tips that include her unique take on cast-iron cookware care.

  • Wild Bread

    Sourdough Reinvented

    Is the world ready to rethink bread making?

    MaryJane Butters thinks so. Wild Bread completely reinvents the concept of healthier-for-you, naturally fermented sourdough.

    Until now, sourdough was perceived as too much work and sour-tasting, artisan-style-only loaves. In Wild Bread, her quick and easy 1 minute 2x/day technique demonstrates the use of eight different types of flours for each bread featured—everything from gluten-free brown-rice flour to quinoa to common white to heirloom whole wheat—for a whopping 295 recipes and 475 photographs.

    Using her step-by-step method, every style of bread imaginable, including gluten-free, will loft with wild abandon without the purchase of a single packet of not-so-healthy, store-bought yeast. In nutritionally superior wild-yeast bread, fermentation triggers the release of vital nutrients and breaks down carbohydrates. In MaryJane’s world, there’s no such thing as too much bread because once you convert to slow-rise wild-bread making, that bagel you’ve been thinking about is more like a vitamin pill than a source of “carb-loaded” guilt.
