Sushi Rice


1. Wash rice carefully, drain in a sieve and let stand 30 minutes.
2. Place rinsed rice, water* and cook rice.
3. Stir together all sushi vinegar ingredients.
4. Transfer hot rice to a large wooden sushi bowl, making a mound. Pour sushi vinegar over and mix rice by cutting across it in a fast slashing motion, then cool it fanning.

* The amount of water for cooking sushi rice is a little less than that used in cooking regular rice.
