  • 1 1/2cups Water
  • 3tablespoons rice wine vinegaror 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar and a pinch of sugar

  1. Rinse the sushi rice well, rubbing it around in the strainer as the water passes through. Rinse until the water runs clear (about 3 minutes). Measure the rice and cooking water carefully

  4. When cooking time is up, count 5 minutes of Natural pressure release. Then, quick release the rest of the pressure slowly using the valve. Even if all of the pressure is naturally released before the 5 minutes are up keep the lid closed the entire time. Otherwise, release any remaining pressure slowly using the valve.
  5. Stir the rice-wine vinegar into the rice handling it delicately without over-working it.
  6. Tumble the rice into a large wooden bowl or wooden cutting board and smooth-out into an even layer.
  7. Let cool for about 10 minutes, and it’s ready to be used to make sushi! Cool the cooked sushi rice by spreading in an even layer in a wooden bowl or cutting-board.
  8. For making sushi: Slice fresh vegetables for filling into long thin, even strips – use avocado, fresh tomatoes, even peppers Layout nonlinear ingredients in a rectangular shape. Use cooked, smoked or pickled fish for filling – only experts should be purchasing and handling raw fish
