This is the basic ‘pickling’ solution for sushi rice. Recipes for sushi vinegar seem to vary widely with different amounts of rice, vinegar, sugar and salt. That means, there’s some wiggle room here. If your measurements are a little off – no worries. You can give your sushi vinegar a little more body and flavor by adding a small strip of konbu. Add the konbu while heating vinegar, sugar and salt (and discard before storing).
Rice Vinegar….. 1 cup
Salt…. 2 teaspoon
1. Combine vinegar, sugar and salt into a small sauce pan.
2. Heat on until sugar and salt are dissolved.
3. Remove from heat, cool and then store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Warm up before using.
