    Directions

    1. Place rice in a bowl and fill with cold water. Swish with hand to release excess starch from rice; drain. Repeat process three times until water is almost clear; drain. Place rice and 1 3/4 cups water in a medium saucepan on high heat. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer for about 12 mins or until water is absorbed. Remove from heat. Let stand 10 mins.
    2. For the sushi vinegar, mix rice vinegar, salt, sugar and mirin in a small bowl; stir until sugar is dissolved.
    3. Place rice in a large bowl. Gradually add the sushi vinegar with a flat wooden spoon or plastic spatula. Fan the rice for a few minutes, folding rice occasionally from the outside to the center of the bowl, until rice is almost cool. (This may be done by hand or with an electric fan set on low). Cover rice with damp cloth.
