I made the mistake of doing my friend a favor...

Laura D. | Mar 4, 2007 10:26 AM

The other night my friend/ex boyfriend (and hopefully one day boyfriend-again) mentioned to me that he had tried some fresh edamame and loved it. Since he knows that I'm a tad obsessed with food (though ironically I dislike edamame) he asked where to purchase fresh edamame. Since I was going to food stores/suppliers I told him I'd look for some for him and pick some up if I found it, since we had plans to get together last night and I figured I could pass off the edamame at that time. Well, I found the edamame at Whole Foods, and got two packages worth, but unfortunately our plans fell through and now the stuff is sitting in my fridge. We have plans to get together this week, but according to the sell-by date the beans won't last that long. Are these freezable? Let me clarify what they are--the package says they are "Edamame" and that the ingredients are soybeans and salt. And, in case this is a question, they are still in their pods as opposed to what you frequently find frozen which are not. What do you think--are they freezable and if so, how will they taste? I know you can freeze most veggies, but since these will be eaten uncooked, as opposed to most other veggies that you freeze and then cook, I'm not sure how they will taste. Thanks in advance for your help--hopefully the boy will feel so appreciative of my effort that he'll have to take me back... (I can dream, can't I?)
