Story Behind this Recipe

This recipe was handed down to me by my mother. If you make sushi vinegar to stock, as long as the sugar and salt have dissolved there's no need to let it rest for a day. If making the sushi vinegar on the spot for one batch of sushi rice (3 rice cooker cups' worth) you need 80 ml of rice vinegar, 2 to 3 tablespoons of sugar and 1 teaspoon of salt. The rice should be just the right sweetness. Microwave the sushi vinegar to dissolve the sugar and salt (about 20 seconds).
