 Sushi rice
 1 cup short grain rice
 2 cups water
 Cook rice till done (bring to boil, then simmer, covered for 20 minutes).
 While rice is cooking, combine in a small saucepan: 3 tablespoons rice
 vinegar, 1-2 tablespoons sugar (depending on how sweet you like the rice),
 and 1/2 teaspoon salt.  Heat till sugar is completely dissolved.
 When the rice is done and still hot, put it in a large bowl.  Slowly drizzle
 the vinegar mixture over the rice while gently stirring it.  Once you've
 poured in the vinegar (and have a free hand), fan the rice with some
 newspaper while stirring to help it cool more quickly.  Keep stirring and
 fanning till the rice is at room temperature.  It should be perfect
 To make sushi, place a seaweed wrapper on a bamboo mat or some foil.  Wet
 your hands thoroughly, and pat rice onto the seaweed.  The rice should be
 about 1/2" thick.  Cover the wrapper completely except for a little space at
 the ends.  Add your fillings, and roll, pressing tightly so that it
 maintains a cylindrical shape.  Cut in 1" rounds and ENJOY!
