Frozen edamame

Hello

Does anyone know where to buy frozen edamame - my kids love them but the only ones I have found are 9chf from Jelmoli (400g). Would like to know if I can find them anywhere else

Thanks!

Sharon

Re: Frozen edamame

You can find edamame at Nishi's Japan shop in the Schaffhauserstrasse. They cost CHF 6.80 there (for a 500g bag).

I generally rinse them in lukewarm water, nuke em for a couple minutes then toss them with a touch of sea salt.

Yummy stuff!

Re: Frozen edamame

Hi Peg,

Thanks! I thought some "nuking" might be involved... anyone know how to prepare frozen edamame without a microwave?

thank you

Re: Frozen edamame

Can't you just blanch them in boiling water, then salt them?

Yes, you can, I think the instructions on the packet I usually get suggests either way (that or nuke).

I tend to feel a bit cramped with too much going on on the stove though (the size of appliances here still gets me ) so always wind up tossing them in the microwave.

I know what *I* need is to get a rice cooker (steamer) so that I can stop using the stove for that and instead do my edamame on the stove.

Re: Frozen edamame

Thank you! So for the not so experienced cook - "Blanching" them means that I take the FROZEN edamame and dip them for one or two minutes in boiling water - or do I need to defrost them first, then "Blanche"?

Thanks again.

Re: Frozen edamame

You want them to still have some firmness to them... I'd say if they're frozen you may need more than 2 min... maybe 4 or 5?

If you can, if you have one, put them in a strainer that you can fully dip into the pot of boiling water.. this way you can take them all out at once as soon as they are the "done-ness" that you prefer (rather than having to fish around and have some wind up soggy).

Re: Frozen edamame

Actually, they are not really meant to be eaten hot. You only blanch them to defrost them. After you cook them, I recommend letting them cool to room temperature. You can even refrigerate them. We don't want to burn the kids, do we?

You can even just let them defrost to room temperature, then eat them. But I like to think boiling them kills some imagined germs, and the salt adds some flavor.

I think of them as Pacific Ocean Peanuts. Greater starter while waiting for your sushi.

Indeed, but I feel like getting them nice and hot helps the salt "stick" better. Maybe I'm imagining things though.

And now, I have a "killer" taste for some goooood sushi and edamame, from a restaurant (I want out of the kitchen! )

Anybody in Geneva know where to find frozen edamame? I've tried a few Asian shops as well as local Migros/Coop and haven't been able to find this!

I get mine from the Picard Freezer place near Thoiry in France;

Not far from the Meyrin border crossing if you live that side of the lake.
They also do a pretty reasonable battered cod if you're that way inclined....
