Edamame

weather: light rain
outside: 16°C
mood: okay
Scored fresh edamame Thursday evening. I couldn't find them anywhere. I was starting to get desparate and was seriously considering ordering them online =O =\

They were in the frozen foods section, not the fresh produce section where I expected them to be. Well, we do have organic farms here in Vancouver and there are edamame growers in Canada. Hey, if Pringles can be put in the potato chip aisle, I think it's perfectly reasonable for me to expect edamame in fresh produce.

Okay, fine, I just suck at This Wife Thing™.

Hooray for edamame :)

Back in undergrad, we used to have bags of the stuff in our freezer.

Re:
It's like peanuts, they're highly addictive. But it's the best thing to be addicted to =D

I heard that in Japan, they serve edamame with a beer instead of peanuts at bars.

There's an amazing Japanese grocery right on the way home that sells them, but I've only bought them frozen.
THey're sooo yummy - I'm addicted. Poor Mike is finsing little pods all over the kitchen.

Hey, I'm curious, do you boil yours? How much salt do you add? I like them bland, but W wanted a bit of salt...

I think the frozen ones we get may already be boiled and ready to eat. I usually put them in my salad with balsamic vinegrette, no salt.

Oops... try "ed-dah-MAH-may" ... I realized that 'e' could be mistaken for a long 'ee' =P
