       Title: SUSHI RICE
  Categories: Oriental, Vegetables, Rice
       Yield: 12 servings
       4 c  Rice;Short Grain
       4    Water;cups
       4 ts Sugar
     1/2 c  Vinegar;Rice or mild white
       6 tb Sugar
       4 ts Salt
       4 ts Mirin or Dry Sherry
   Put 4 cups short-grain rice into a large, heavy pan. Add 4 cups cold
   water and 4 teaspoons sugar; soak about 2 hours. Cover and bring to a
   boil on high heat until the water begins to spew out from the lid.
   Without lifting the lid, turn heat immediately to low (on an electric
   range, have one of the units preheated to low and immediately
   transfer the pan of rice). Cook for 12 minutes on low heat; remove
   from heat and let stand 10 minutes, all without lifting the lid.
   Meanwhile, combine in a small pan 1/2 cup white vinegar, 6
   tablespoons sugar, and 4 teaspoons salt; heat just until sugar is
   dissolved. Also have ready an electric hair dryer or have someone
   standing by who can fan the rice mixture to cool it quickly as you
   add the vinegar mixture (this prevents the rice from becoming soggy).
   Turn the cooked rice immediately into a large bowl and carefully fold
   in the vinegar mixture while fanning or cooling it with the hair
   dryer set on “cool”, being careful to keep the rice grains whole.
   If you use a rice cooker, use a cup measure, and not the small one
   that comes with the cooker and let the rice & water stand for two
   hours before covering and turning the cooker on.
