We buy Organic Edamame (ready-to-eat) in the refrigerated area at Costco. I always look for packages with the date furthest in the future. When I get home, I divide up the pods into 3 quart zip-top bags and put two in the freezer, because I know we won’t eat them all during the week, (and I don’t want them to go bad). The smaller bags will easily thaw overnight in the refrigerator. You can also buy frozen edamame (uncooked), just boil for 4-5 minutes before eating.
