We usually boil Edamame (green soy beans) in a salted water, and drain water off it.
And cool it with air. ( If we cool it in water, it will loose rich taste.)
And push beans out of pods with finger to mouth.
Nowaday's, we can buy frozen Edamame all season.
But I like to Eat it with beer in summer.
Phto above is frozen Edamame ( alredy boiled) in supermarket.
Photo above is Edamame fresh from farm.
