      RECIPE TITLE "Sushi Rice Recipe" source:     

       yields Makes about 6 cups

    Sushi is all about the seasoned rice and an array of accompaniments to top or roll inside the rice. Short grain rice is used for sushi because of its ability to retain its texture when cooked and to stay soft even when cool. A Hangiri or cedar tub is used when seasoning the rice, because it absorbs excess moisture; a plain wooden bowl makes a good substitute.


    5 tablespoons rice vinegar, unseasoned
    5 tablespoons sugar
    4 teaspoons sea salt
    3 inch square kombu

    3 1/2 cups short-grain sushi rice
    4 cups water

    Combine vinegar, sugar, sea salt and kombu in small skillet. Stir mixture over low heat until sugar and salt dissolve. Cool to room temperature.

    Meanwhile, rinse rice under cold running water until water runs clear. Drain well. Combine rice and 4 cups water in heavy medium saucepan. Bring water to boil. Reduce heat to medium-low. Cover and simmer gently until most of water is absorbed, about 15 minutes. Alternatively, cook rice in rice cooker according to manufacturer's instructions. Remove from heat; let stand covered 10 minutes. Transfer rice to large wide wooden or glass bowl. Sprinkle with 1/2 of vinegar mixture. Stir rice gently being careful not to smash rice. Season mixture to taste with additional vinegar mixture.

    Transfer rice to container cover with a damp cloth to prevent rice from drying out.

    Dictionary of Japanese Food
    Dictionary of Japanese Food At last, what every Westerner in a Japanese restaurant or market needs: the first truly comprehensive dictionary of Japanese food and ingredients. Standard dictionaries can often mislead us--with akebia for akebi, sea cucumber for namako, plum for ume. Hosking’s dictionary includes not only dishes and ingredients, everything from the delicate mitsuba leaf to the dreadful okoze fish: colorful appendices disclose such aspects of Japanese culture as the making of miso to the tea ceremony and the influence of vegetarianism. With Japanese-English and English-Japanese sections, A Dictionary of Japanese Food explains the nuances and eliminates the mysteries of Japanese food.
