Grown by Anthony & Carol Boutard in Gaston, Oregon, Otello's Pebbles have an excellent assertive flavor and silky texture; they cook down to a soupy, beany broth wonderful with lambs shanks and pork shoulder. Named after a mysterious bean farmer named Otello, they arrived in Gaston as an unmarked and unsolicited packet of mixed seeds, sent from a friend of the Boutards' who also has an interest in obscure varieties. If not for a small patch of unplanted soil at the end of a row, they may have been lost to history. Thanks to Anthony and Carol, we get to enjoy their distinctly delicious flavors.
