Archive for the ‘Edamame Soya Beans’ Category

Yesterday, I found boiled Edamame young soya beans without shells in Tesco, I bought it.

 I ate one and it was ok, but freshness of Edamame has been lost with disappointment. Somehow, I will be able to use it for salad this time, though.

It seems that with the shells, people in the UK may not recognise the Edamame soy beans, so Tesco has removed shells and cooked ready for salad or stir fry, I believe.

I expect more people recognise the addictive taste of summer vegetables and farmers grow them in the UK.

Edamame Boiled with Salt

Edamame Boiled with Salt

At last, I found Edamame young soya beans in a supermarket in London.

I suppose they have at last got right decision makers who are capable of tasting the differences.

We used to be able to get frozen Edamame soya beans imported from China in Japanese food shops in London. As the Chinese vegetables, frozen food and other products have been recalled due to overuse of chemicals and fertilizers, I did not buy them in the UK.

So, when I was lucky to went back to Japan in July, when the high season of Edamame soya beans comes, I was able to eat never-frozen Edamame. Japanese often eat the boiled Edamame as snack with beer or Sake.

The Edamame sold in Tesco was not really fresh but the taste was acceptable. The introductory price was reasonable at £1.49 for 225g.

I expect that they over-watch safety and quality of products to be sold in the UK as we are not shown the processes of the produces.
