This is the version from the 1964 Joy of Cooking by Irma Rombauer. In 1975 the Joy of Cooking says to cook them for the 10 to 15 minutes in their pods, hot or as an informal cold snack, and "let the diner pop them from the pod". The more recent version seems a lot more healthy. I do not have the current revision of this particulat cookbook. That's what is done in Japanese restaurants locally. A dish of the cooled (and slightly salted) pods is set on the table much the same as a dish of peanuts. You pop the beans directly into your mouth. The term for the soy beans when served like this is edamame. Other suggestions are to use in recipes where you would use lima beans.
