Edamame are green soybeans. Salt-boiled edamame in pods are eaten by squeezing beans out of pods with your fingers. It's a great appetizer to serve with beer. We use them as an appetizer especially for stir fries or curried dishes. Oh, and our 5 year old daughter LOVES them.

Wash edamame well and put in a bowl. Boil lots of water in a large pot. Add about 2 Tbsp of salt in the boiling water. Put edamame in the boiling water and boil for 3 to 4 minutes, or until softened. Drain edamame in a colander. Serve.
