When it comes to edamame, I have a hard time resisting.  I normally think of it boiled, salted with some fine sea salt and released from the pod with the pressure of your teeth.  This is exactly how we had it this past weekend in the company of the boyfriend’s brother and fiance as we watched the UConn Men’s basketball team make their way to the final four!  (And the edamame made their way from stove to stomach quite quickly as we watched this nail biter of a game…)
