[Farmhouse Recipe] A Delicious Way to Boil Edamame

The way you boil edamame will affect both the color and flavor. This is a simple and delicious way to boil edamame.


200-300 g
40 g
1 liter


1. Lightly wash the edamame, then snip both ends with kitchen scissors.
2. Sprinkle 1/3 of the 40 g of salt onto the edamame, massage with both hands, and remove the bristly hairs.
3. Bring 1 liter of water to a boil and add the remaining salt. Add the edamame from Step 2 (the edamame should have some salt).
4. When it comes to a boil again, boil until the edamame is still just a bit hard (about 4 minutes). Throw out the hot water, drain, and chill in a sieve. Eat one to check.
5. If it cools immediately, it will retain its vibrant color, so if you can, use a hand fan to cool it down. And it's done!
