Cooking Instructions:

  1.     Rinse the rice several times until water runs clear.

  3.     Add in rinsed rice.
  4.     Bring to a very light simmer over medium heat.

  7.     Remove from the heat and let it sit for 10 minutes. Do not remove the lid.
  8.     Prepare Seasoned Vinegar
  9.     Add rice vinegar, sugar and kosher salt to a saucepan.
  10.     Heat on medium until sugar and salt has dissolved.
  11.     Remove from heat & set aside.
