Well, do you?
It's edamame! All fresh and still dirty from my CSA. As someone who has only seen this shelled and frozen in a bag at my grocery store, this was quite they eye opener. First of all, they are kind of hairy. Who knew?? Second of all, I all ready knew that I liked them, but OMG! Fresh, they are amazing. I was reading somewhere that they are a favorite bar snack in Japan. They like them with a little salt and a beer. Think about that. What is our favorite bar snack? Buffalo chicken wings, fried pork rings, chips...I don't know. But whatever it is, it is certainly not good for you like edamame. They are so easy and so yummy. To eat, you kind of place the pod between your teeth and strip out the seeds, or you could just pop open the pod with your fingers and toss them in your mouth. But be warned, these are completely addictive. I didn't get any pictures of them cooked, we ate them too quick!

Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the beans and cook for 3-5 minutes, or until tender.
Drain well, sprinkle with salt flakes to taste, and toss together.
