Boiled Edamame (with Freezing Instructions, too!)


If you are new to edamame, most would agree the most simple and delicious way to enjoy them is to boil and salt them.

  • 2 teaspoon salt
  • edamame

Put 2 tsp of salt in a saucepan and bring to a boil.  Drop your edamame in their pods into the water and simmer for 5-7 minutes. They are done when their texture is tender and buttery.  Drain them and sprinkle generously with salt.  Serve warm in the pod.  To eat, pick up a pod and pop the beans into your mouth with your teeth, taking in some of the salt from the pods as you do so.  Delicious!

To FREEZE your edamame to make snacks another time, drop the pods in boiling water for 1-2 minutes, then transfer immediately to cold water to cool.  Drain and freeze in ziplock bags.  You can use the frozen edamame later to make the boiled snack above.
