This does make a good rice for use in Sushi, and if like me you like to change things up a bit, there are a lot of different seasonings, and ingredients you can add to this original style Sushi rice.

This recipe makes cooking sushi rice easy. It's very important to rinse the rice well so that it is sticky when making sushi.
