Easy Sushi Vinegar for Storing

Easy Sushi Vinegar for Storing

This is a sweet vinegar sauce that's handy to have so you can use it whenever you like. It's not as sweet as standard sushi vinegar, so I recommend it for sunomono (vinegared side dishes) or for chirashi sushi.


Rice vinegar
240 ml
6-7 tablespoons
1-2 tablespoons


1. Sterilize a storage jar with boiling water. Put all the ingredients in the jar, and shake a little to dissolve the sugar and salt. Leave for 1/2 a day to a full day before using.
