    I purchased some egg molds, silicone cups and the Nigiri Sushi maker. Shinobu is right when she said they are easy to use and you get excellent results. In fact I placed another order yesteray for more items. My daughter (12) loves to cook and I have been teaching her for many years. These cooking tools are easy to use and have opened the door to Japanese cooking for her. I highly recommend them. The little Nigiri Sushi Maker is great, we just have to perfect our Sushi rice. We hope Shinobu posts a recipe soon!

    1. Thanks Deb☆ Sure, I'll do a post on how to make sushi rice! For now, I'll let you know the vinegar mixture: 2 Tbsp vinegar, 2 Tbsp sugar, 1/2 tsp salt. Mix it into freshly cooked (hot) rice, (medium grain or sushi rice) turning the rice with a rice paddle while you fan it. My mother taught me that I should keep doing that till it's cool, but I just cover it with wrap until it's cool, and the resulting sushi rice is still great! (When you cook the rice beforehand, make sure you don't use too much water - a little less than usual is best.)
