Please give some help here. I bought yeoul moo, looked nice, small, very fresh. I made kimchi, and mul kimchi with it. The mul was wonderful, but the radish, and the leaves were so fibrous, and chewy, that it was impossible to swallow. Like when my children were babies and they would chew a piece of meat, and it gets bigger and bigger!
Is there a way to pick good yeoul moo, or did I just get a bad batch? Do they get less tough as they get older?
I am sure other people have had this problem. I have been around the block a few times and I can usually pick good produce, but I am at a loss here.
Thank you for any help!
