SUSHI RICE
You may or may not know that most Sushi restaurants in New Zealand use Medium-Grain rice for their sushi. While the results are very tasty, Medium Grain rice is not the preferred rice variety of Sushi Restaurants in Japan. Most Japanese Sushi Restaurants will choose to use a Short-Grain rice for making their sushi. This mama san Sushi Rice is a short-grain Japonica Rice – the preferred variety, the real deal!

'Nori' - Sushi Seaweed
SUSHI SEAWEED
This Sushi Seaweed (or “Sushi Nori” as it’s called in Japanese) is just what you need to make sushi at home. Japanese Cuisine uses a number of different types of seaweed. Common types are “wakame”, which you’ll often find in miso soup, and “kombu”, which forms the base of many Japanese soup stocks.

How to use Sushi Seaweed:
Most of us are familiar with rolled sushi, but it’s not the only way to use this stuff. You may like to try making Te-Maki Sushi. It is fun and great for parties.

Sushi vinegar
SUSHI VINEGAR
Sediment may form naturally in the brewing process and the vinegar may darken over time, but this in no way affects the quality. Store in a cool, dark place.

Making Sushi Rice:
Add Sushi Vinegar to cooked Sushi Rice while hot and mix gently with a chopping motion. Use 40ml of Vinegar per cup of (uncooked) rice.

'Gari' - Sushi Ginger
SUSHI GINGER (JAPANESE PICKLED GINGER)
Sushi Ginger (or “Gari” as it is called in Japanese) is often seen as an accompaniment for Sushi. It is considered by the Japanese to be a kind of palate cleanser (or “Kuchi-Naoshi”). When eaten between mouthfuls of sushi it does a great job of “resetting” your taste buds so that you can fully appreciate the next piece of sushi. Sushi ginger can add a crisp edge to a number of meals, so don’t be afraid to experiment with it when you are cooking other dishes!
