Edamame Soybeans "Beer Friend" - a healthy cocktail snack
Easy to grow and easy to eat, better tasting than pretzels and better for you, these soybeans are a mainstay in our garden every year. The seeds sprout quickly and mature early into deep green plants 2' - 2 1/2' high. Be sure to protect from rabbits, deer and woodchucks with fencing or a sprinkler scarecrow. Boil pods for 3-4 minutes in salted water and salt lightly. Serve at cocktail hour. The pods break apart easily in your fingers revealing 3-4 delicious beans. Eat the beans and save the pods for the chickens. These seeds are a bargain at $3.35! Think of how many bags of pretzels you would have to buy to equal the amount of food these seeds will grow.
