Notes

This is a translation from the Japanese recipe that my family liked. My neighbor, Kim, also liked it and would hide it in her fridge when I shared with her. Kim is pretty sneaky. She also hid the edamame in her freezer so her family wouldn't eat them all up!

A dash of local for every season
