Connoisseur selection / storage

Select edamame that are plump, and bright green in color. In the case where still attached to a branch, those having fresh-looking leaves and that are dense with pods are of good quality. If you boil and freeze while still fresh, this freshness will be preserved during long-term storage in a freezer.
