"Eda-mommy"

i love the look that says, what on earth are these? We got edamame in our farm box this week and this was a true first for us. The kids were great little helpers and pulled the fuzzy little bean pods off the stalks with me. I wasted no time, took the directions of the farm, and boiled them in salted and soyed water for about 10 minutes. Once they cooled down a little we snacked on them all night. I think i enjoyed them the most. The kids and Chris thought that they were ok. I was compulsively snacking on them into the next day until i found the beetle...it was in the bag i had stored them in in the fridge overnight. Was this some kind of apocolypse beetle that can survive a full 10 minutes in boiling water? I did not want to know...i got all grossed out and threw the rest away. Sorry farm. The eda-mommy was good while it lasted.

Oh I LOVE edamames!They are fun to eat out of the pod but I bet the beetle would have been a little disturbing to eat that way...but then again you may have never known and gotten a little extra protein. :o)

having lived in Hawaii for 4 years, I LOVE edamame. I used to just eat them out of the pod, but one lucky day I was using my fingers and found a slug looking thing in one. I always used my fingers after that, of course. I know we have oodlesof farms here, but wish we had one with a set up like yours!
