Also, I bought a package of edamame (just the beans, no shells) and they smell really really awful, like sewage. They also have a mild sewage flavor, too, unless I pour tons of salt on them. Did I just get a bad bag?
I've had edamame at sushi places, but they were unshelled, and tasted perfectly fine. Would I be better off just buying the frozen bags of unshelled beans?
AND, how do you cook yours? I've just been microwaving them with salt and putting them in my rice.
