We have delicious Edamame from Down2Earth Farms on the order page this week! Edamame are fun to eat and so easy to prepare! They are salty, a little crunchy, and perfect for snacking. They make an excellent appetizer or side dish. All you need to prepare edamame is boiling water, salt, and 10 minutes. Just plop the whole pods into lightly salted boiling water for five minutes. Drain and toss with a little coarse salt like kosher salt or sea salt. To eat them, cool the cooked pods slightly, then just pop the edamame beans out of their shells and eat them straight from the pod. If you want to try something a little more exotic, follow the steps above and then stir-fry the pods for 1-2 minutes in a little oil with garlic, crushed red pepper, or grated ginger. These little touches give edamame a whole new twist on flavor!
