If you’re anything like me, you’ll be asking yourself, “What is sushi vinegar?” I know I did when I was in college and had no idea what this mysterious substance was! It seems mysterious that something that gives so many people “the flu” would also help my sushi making, but it does. I’ll tell you why in this article.

Sushi is one of those dishes that needs more than just a little bit of sugar and vinegar to help it taste good. Vodka and sake usually do the trick, but not always. Most rice vinegar is just a bit water, but there are recipes where you add sugar instead so you can add sugar to your liking. Sugar gives the dish a sweet, syrupy flavor, but it also adds starch to your food which helps retain the crunch of your food. Of course, if you want to cut down on the carbohydrates in your diet, this may be a good choice for you to make.

What is sushi vinegar? It’s a condiment made from vinegar and sugar. Most people make their own by combining a bit of white vinegar with some sugar (sugar substitutes work just as well) and mixing it together. Many people choose to put it on top of their sushi or mix it into their favorite drinks.

My preference is to add it to my makiwara after preparing the fish for sushi. The vinegar helps me retain the crispiness of my maki, and also adds some extra tartness. There are several different kinds of vinegars, but my personal favorite is a very sweet type that I just pour onto my maki after browning it in a hot pan. The sweetness comes from the yeast in the vinegar, which adds a rich flavor to the dish. You don’t need to use much vinegar to give your dishes a sweet taste, and if you feel that you need more than a teaspoon or two, go easy on it and see what you end up with.

What is sushi vinegar made of? I use rice vinegar because it’s inexpensive, readily available at just about any Asian market, and it keeps well when it’s in the refrigerator. If you don’t have any in your fridge, or if you can’t get any locally, you can easily order it online. You can even buy it in bulk online; many sellers have great prices and free shipping on certain items, so you can save money if you buy in bulk.

To make your own isn’t too difficult either. Just get a bottle of white vinegar, a small container to heat water in (I prefer a small frying pan), and a cup of raw sugar. I heat mine to boiling, then let the mixture steep for about five minutes before using. Once you have it just about ready, all you have to do is mix it with a little bit of raw sugar (so the sweetness won’t be completely masked by the vinegar). All you have to do now is make some sushi!
