1Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. While that’s coming to a boil, rinse the edamame.
2 Drop the edamame in the boiling water. After 3 minutes pull out a pod and run it under cold water to cool. Check to see if the beans are tender. If so, drain them. Otherwise it may take a minute or two longer. Place the drained pods in abowl and sprinkle with coarse (or regular) salt.
3 To eat them: Place the pod in your mouth, holding on to the stem end. Using your teeth, pop the beans out of the pod. Don’t worry- the fuzzy-ness won’t get in your mouth if you scrape the beans out with your teeth. Drop the empty pod and eat another! It’s just like popcorn!
