43 New-to-Me... #5 Dry-Roasted Black Edamame

My fifth New-to-Me food for my birthday challenge was dry-roasted black edamame. We love the warm, green, slightly-salty, boiled edamame that are (is?*) frequently served in Japanese restaurants. In fact, we love them (it?*) so much that we planted soybeans last summer and made edamame at home. I like a wide variety of soy products, so I expected to like this dry-roasted black version.

It was actually one of the 4 items Steve and Trevor put in my latest Chopped basket.

I liked the edamame out of the bag and incorporated into my dish. I rated them (it?*) an 8.


*Different websites vary on whether to treat edamame as a plural (edamame are) or collective (edamame is) noun. I found countless pages of discussion (quite interesting to a grammar nerd like me!) but nothing definitive. What's your opinion?
