Rinse fresh edamame. Put edamame pods into briskly boiling water. Add 1tsp to 1tbls of salt to water depending on your preference. Cook until tender (I cooked mine for about 8-10 minutes). Do not overcook. You want the beans to slide out of the pod easily without the pod turning to mush. The beans should be tender bordering firm. Drain water, let cool, sprinkle with salt and serve. Take edamame pod by the stem, place between teeth, strip soybeans from the pod with your teeth and discard empty pods.
