Cabbage and Cheese: Both Chinese cabbage and cheese contain calcium and phosphorus and should be paired in moderation. For example, maintaining a high calcium-to-phosphorus ratio helps to form calcium phosphate, which can strengthen teeth and bones, and help prevent osteoporosis and muscle cramps. 3. Cabbage and lean meat: The vitamin C in Chinese cabbage combines with the protein in lean meat to help synthesize collagen and enhance skin elasticity. Avoid: 1. Cabbage and cucumbers: Cucumbers contain vitamin C decomposing enzymes, which will decompose the vitamin C contained in Chinese cabbage, resulting in the loss of nutrients. 2. Cabbage and pork liver: Pig liver contains copper, which will oxidize the vitamin C contained in oxidized Chinese cabbage, thereby reducing the intake of vitamin C. 3.

Cooking Skills：Edible parts are tender stems and leaves. When Chinese cabbage grows, the outer leaves are the first to grow, and the inner heart leaves grow out slowly later. Therefore, the outermost leaves have a greater chance of contacting pesticides. Therefore, the outer leaves must be removed, and the leaves are split into individual pieces and soaked. After about 45 minutes in water, rinse with running water. If you add a little vinegar or other acidic substances to cooking, it can keep its white color.
Notes：If it is marinated with sea salt, and then added with pepper and garlic, it is processed into "Kimchi", which is a very popular food in Japan, Korea and northern China.
Rotting cabbage contains toxins such as nitrites, which end up in the gastrointestinal tract with secondary amines, synthesizing nitrosamine carcinogens. In fact, as long as the human body absorbs a large amount of nitrite, it will cause poisoning, and the patient will have symptoms such as hemoglobin disease, black mouth disease, gastroenteritis, difficulty breathing, unconsciousness, etc., which is fatal. If it is left overnight after frying, the nitrite content will also increase sharply, so it is not suitable for consumption, so as to avoid nitrite poisoning.
Dish：Stir-fried Chinese cabbage with bacon, grilled Chinese cabbage with minced legs, and soaked Chinese cabbage.
Supply Period： The Supply Season Is From October To April Each Year.
Suggested Eating Method：
Before cooking, water is scalded (half cooked). The water used in Sichuan can add a little oil to make the color of the vegetables more beautiful. Hot pot, hot oil, and savory, add hot cabbage for about 20 to 30 seconds. Avoid the old lady who cooks the dishes (the color usually becomes yellow and shrinks), and the bitter taste will become obvious.
