History of The Perfect Simplified Sushi Vinegar
Sushi vinegar, also known as sushi seasoning, is an essential ingredient in making sushi rice. The traditional preparation of sushi vinegar involves simmering rice vinegar, sugar, salt, and sometimes kombu (seaweed) until the sugar and salt dissolve. However, this recipe offers a simplified version that skips the simmering step and uses the acidity of lemon juice to balance the sweetness.
The result is a perfectly balanced sushi vinegar that is easy to make and adds a bright, tart flavor to the rice. This recipe is perfect for beginners or anyone who wants to save time without compromising on taste.
