Finding Sweet Green Soybeans
true Japanese name for green soybeans is edamame. Edamame (pronounced
ed-a-MOM-ay) is purchased either in the pod or already podded.
Podded edamame resembles short, puffy green beans or thinner,
but puffier snow pea pods. Podded, or shelled edamame is just
the little green soybean without the pod. Another name for podded
sweet green soybeans is mukimi, although I have seen this word
on only one brand.
are soybeans harvested before maturity, while they are still green
and sweet. Sweet green soybeans are a different variety than traditional
soybeans and are grown in the Midwest, especially Minnesota. Some
green soybeans come from other countries such as Taiwan.
limited to Asian food markets and health food stores, sweet green
soybeans can now be found in many supermarkets in either the frozen
food vegetable aisle or specialty/nutrition section freezer case.
Some Asian stores may occasionally carry fresh soybeans, but they
are typically frozen. Two specific package sizes are available
in 10 oz. box of podded green soybeans or 16 oz. plastic bag of
podded or unpodded green soybeans Prices range from 1.89 - 4.29,
depending on manufacturer.
