Rice Vinegar 3/4 cup
Sugar 1/4 cup
Salt 1 1/2 tsp.
Mirin (fish seasoning powder) Optional
Mix together and then add to rice. Since you want the rice to soak in the vinegar, use a smaller bowl so it is more condensed and better for soaking.
Rinse rice by hand 3 times (this is REALLY important!!!) for 1 minute each rinse. Scrub in colandar with running water over the rice.
Put in pan with lid and use high heat until boiling and then reduce to medium and cook 15 minutes (DO NOT REMOVE LID -- even if the house burns down ;D)
Remove pan and set aside and let rest with lid on for 15 minutes.
After rice has cooled a bit, add sushi vinegar.
