Rice vinegar is the key ingredient for authentic sushi vinegar, which is what is used in sushi rice. It's also super easy to make sushi vinegar. This sushi vinegar recipe is for three rice cooker cups of dry rice (each rice cooker cup is about ¾ of a standard cup). In addition to ⅓ cup of rice vinegar you will need 3 Tbsp sugar and 1 ½ tsp kosher/sea salt.
Combine the rice vinegar, sugar, and salt in a small saucepan and bring it to a boil over medium-high heat. Stir until the sugar is completely dissolved. You can also put the ingredients in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave for approximately 1 minute depending on microwave power, or until sugar is dissolved.
While the sushi rice is warm pour the vinegar over top and coat the rice.
