Salt-like barnacle-ish grainy bits on cabbage leaves?

sequins | | Jan 4, 2009 09:30 AM

I came across these things clinging to several inner (not outer) leaves of a head of green cabbage. They look like large grains of salt -- rather than, say, grains of dirt -- but do not easily rinse off. I need to pick at them with my nails to get them off. It's as the cabbage grew tiny barnacles, or boils. Yikes. Could someone identify this stuff, its cause, and its safety?
