I don't usually write reviews, however.... This is the BEST recipe for sushi rice I have ever found or used. I have made it at least 6 times and each time it makes perfect rice. I use real whole sugar not white or brown, real whole cane sugar).The use of mirin gives perfect flavor every time! People, it is VERY hard to find REAL Mirin. Most of what is called mirin is salt and sugar added to rice vinegar. That is NOT mirin at all. Find and pay for the real thing, it is WELL worth the trouble.
This was easy to make. Used this when I made sushi roll. Love it! Then I made it again when I wanted more sushi! :D Thanks! Made for Photo Forum's March Cooking with an Asian Accent.
I make this recipe from About.com too. It makes fantastic sushi!
