Getting Ripped Off and Restaurant-Style Firecracker Edamame

I wouldn’t say I’m miserly. I mean, I don’t mend my socks or reuse my floss or anything.  But I know when I’ve been ripped off, which is why I cringe every time my husband orders $8-edamame from already overpriced Japanese restaurants. How anyone can justify selling something for $8 that only cost $2.00 to make is ridiculous. This version of edamame is from a very popular Japanese restaurant in town. Hope you enjoy it!
