“Edamame” (えだまめ,枝豆) is a preparation of immature soybeans, green soya bean.
The best season to buy fresh “edamame” at stores is summer, from June to August.
Cooking Edamame is very easy.The pods are boiled in water together with condiments such as salt, and served whole. That’s it!
“Edamame” is rich in nutrients. Especially it’s said that “edamame” is effective in relieving fatigue.
Many Japanese love beers with “edamame” in summer. we need it!!
We can get fresh “edamae” in summer, but nowadays many restaurants have “edamame” at all times of the year. and we can get “frozen Edamame” at supermarkets.
I’m glad that “edamame” is recently very popular in the US, Europe etc.,
as a healthful food item.
Edamame is superb!!
