How to Cook Sweet Whole Soy Beans (Edamame)

This is a good simple way to make sweeter edamame, try it.

Recipe By: Tobuchan (https://cookbuzz.com/kitchen/25)
Serves 2-3 Prep: 5 min Cook: 5 min

Ingredients

Frozen whole edamame 200-250g
Salt (for boiling) 30g
Sugar (for boiling) 30g
Hot water 1.5 litres
Salt (for seasoning) 2-3 pinches

Method

1
This is the pack I bought in a Japanese supermarket in London, it's made in China. It says to boil for 6-7 minutes before washing in cold water - I ignored this!
2
Put 30g each salt & sugar in 1.5 litres hot water andbring to the boil. Add the frozen whole edamame for 2-3 minutes. For a slightly crunchier finish, I would suggest 2 minutes is enough.
3
Drain in a colander and allow to cool slightly. Transfer to a serving dish and sprinkle with good salt, I used Maldon salt.

Tips & Note

●It sounds crazy to add sugar to make sweet edamame, but the beans themselves have sugar in them but it escapes while boiling, so I'm just returning the beans to their natural state. I'm not really adding it! 2% sugar is the right amount, any more and you can really taste it as a bit too much
●The salt for seasoning should be the best you can get. I love Maldon salt from Essex that contains a lot of minerals

Osso Buco, which translates as “hole of bone” is pure meaty awesomeness. Placing on a bed of risotto or polenta pays tribute to Osso Buco’s roots and takes this Italian comfort food to another level. Traditionally, Osso Buco is made with veal but see how I make Beef Osso Buco, a carnivorous wreath.

Risotto doesn't always have to be the star of a dinner menu, it can also serve as a great bed for another dish which it does in episode 106 of POV Italian Cooking where I make a simple Beef Tomato Risotto. This risotto serves as the bed upon which Beef Osso Buco will rest in the next episode (#107).
 
It can be difficult to make a perfect hard-boiled egg that has a creamy yolk and a tender white. Overcooking a hard-boiled egg, which is easy to do, results in a chalky and sometimes greenish yolk, a rubbery egg white and a slightly sulfuric taste. In this video I demonstrate how I use my sous vide to get the perfect hard-boiled egg.
