Boiled and refrigerated edamame can be bought at stores in the United States, but if you receive them from CSA or grow them in your garden, this is how to prepare. Edamame is summer delight and great for snacking.
Edamame is a young soy bean, which is still green. Instead of allowing the beans to mature, soy plants are uprooted during the summer months to be served as a nutritious snack.
Edamame and bear is the best combination in summer, but it also can be the ingredients of zunda-mochi, when mashed and mixed with sugar to coat mochi.
