Edamame Dip

1 pint freshly picked edamame
3 cloves garlic
extra virgin olive oil
¼ tsp salt
2 pinches sugar
lime juice to taste

cut the stem end off the edamame and boil 3-5 minutes in salted water like you would use for pasta. drain and put in cold water. (if you want to eat them now and not make dip, they're really yummy). squeeze the edamame out in the water (the edamame sinks and the pods float). scoop out the pods for your compost and strain the edamame. put the garlic in a food processor or blender until it sticks to the sides. add the edamame, salt and sugar and process, scraping the sides once. pour oil in while processing or blending until the texture is right. add lime juice to taste and adjust salt and sugar as needed. the color should be a light green and the texture is not smooth.
picking the edamame was the most work in this recipe. :-)
