    When cutting Chinese Cabbage for Kim Chi, I see some black dots. It is not an insect. Google says that it means it is not very fresh or it is because of difference in the temperature when stored. Is it still o.k. for Kim Chi? Please tell.

    I experienced the same thing with my Napa cabbage. I recently bought 4 large heads and found black dots throughout. Possibly because it was not stored right, maybe cold, hot? I do remember Maangchi saying that the best harvesting period is in the fall. I came across this short Youtube video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UeCSOE2ERV8 by a Professional Kitchen Chef. He says, “don’t sweat it!”

    Yes!
    I have heard that cabbages with black dots are not fresh from my mom.
    When I found them, I threw out the leaves having black dots!
