Before starting making sushi rice, make the Rice Vinegar first, preferably a couple of days before. If you make sushi often make lots of Rice Vinegar. It won’t go bad it’s just water, sugar and salt.
WASHING RICE ON A BOAT SUCKS!
You’re going to go through quite a bit of water when washing the rice to remove the starch. This is where living on the hard has it’s advantages. You can use 1,000 gallons of fresh water for every cup of rice. lol
I guess you can get creative and drag a cheese cloth full of rice in the lake or ocean. Gross…I was kidding don’t do that!
TAKE YOUR TIME!
Rinsing rice rids the grains of surface starches, prevents clumping, and yields a clean, fresh taste. With all the effort you’re going to spend you need to take the time to do this right. There is no excuse to be lazy…why, cause I just told you so!
Note: Washing rice from your tank water is all fine and dandy. But, cook your rice with bottled water, remember the water in your tank will taste like it came from a garden hose and it might be stale too.
