AVAILABLE AT THESE KROGER CINCINNATI AREA STORES FOR A VERY LIMITED TIME ONLY IN MONTH OF AUGUST: Hyde Park, Anderson, Newport, Walton, Florence, Miamisburg, Centerville
Our fresh edamame originates in the hills of northern Kentucky instead of the far eastern land of China. It's in season from late July to early September and only available in the Greater Cincinnati/Lexington/Louisville area.
Edamame are young green soybeans that have a sweet nutty taste. They're packed with protein, rich in soluble fiber and high in isoflavones (a plant compound that brings down total blood levels of cholesterol). Eat them fresh and it will be hard to buy them in the frozen grocery section again shipped from overseas. See video below for tips on preparing. See video to the left if you were wondering if your kids might like them!
More videos about how we grow and harvest it from late July through early September are at www.edamameusa.com. Edamame is priced per pound and delivered in clear plastic clamshell-type containers made of 70% recycled PETE (Polyethylene Terephthalate) and when you're done with them if your recycling center won't take them Whole Foods will. Order 5 or more pounds for a discount (delivered in 1 gallon ziploc bags) or get them delivered in a single CRESBI crate at a discount for the crate only (normally $14). And if you have your own CRESBI crate for us to transfer the 5 pounds to? Save even more off of bulk pricing -- you're practically buying wholesale!
