I'm not Kathleen, but I'd advise looking in Chinese or Japanese
supermarkets. My local Chinese supermarket has them frozen, and
they're delicious. Fresh soya beans are known as "edamame" (pronounced
edd-uh-mar-may) in Japanese and are a popular snack with drinks; to
serve in this way, boil the whole pod in highly salted water, then
"pop" them out of the pod into your mouth.
A google search (http://www.google.com/) on "edamame" brings up lots
of interesting info.
