Sushi Vinegar



Sushi Vinegar

Sushi vinegar, also known as su, is a vital element of sushi-making. It is a mixture of rice vinegar, sugar, and salt. 

The vinegar provides acidity, the sugar a subtle sweetness, and the salt brings savour. As well as the sweet-sour flavour, the vinegar also helps the rice stick together.

The quality of sushi rice vinegar greatly influences the taste and texture of the rice in sushi. When mixed with freshly cooked medium-grain Japanese rice, it creates the perfect base for sushi rolls, nigiri, and sashimi, both in terms of seasoning and texture.

Beyond sushi, it can be used in various other dishes, such as dressings, marinades, and for pickling liquor. Its versatility makes it a valuable addition to any kitchen.
