Field Goods founder, Donna, just got off the phone ordering from lovely Joe at Vermont Bean Crafters in preparation for the changing season. Here’s what he told us: He can buy additional equipment this season for harvesting beans based on our order. THANK YOU for shifting your purchasing to small farms – it makes a real difference!! They can grow because of you. P.S. the edamame in this week’s bag is one of the toughest crops to grow in the Northeast. Hats off to Martin at Markristo Farm in Hillsdale for pulling it off!
This Week’s Field Goods Favorite
The appetizer of choice in most Japanese restaurants, edamame is an immature soybean for mature eaters though kids & immature adults love ’em as well! To prepare: boil water with salt, add the pods (no peeling or cutting necessary), cook for 5-6 minutes & strain. You can either serve with the pods or peel and pop out the beans to add to salads, pasta, etc. Markristo Farm (CO)
Storage: 1 week in a plastic bag in the fridge.
