Even if you eat the beans in the immature state before they grow big, it is delicious!
Some Kasuga beans have mottled beans with their pods red-purple or black stripes, and others have white beans with their pods no-stripes.
You can eat them as a whole the pod because the pods have no fibers. So they can be deliciously cooked by any ways such as boiling them with salt, dressing them with miso (soybean paste), ohitashi (boiled and seasoned), or tempura (deep fried).
In addition, dried beans, which are dried together with the pods and then removed from the pods, are cooked by soaking them in water and boiling like kintoki (red kidney) beans.
