I had my first experience making homemade sushi this weekend for my daughter’s school project. I had the rolling mat and directions from a book but I had never made maki
before. I found a kid-friendly recipe and headed off to the store. The first grocery store did not sell nori
seaweed paper so I had to drive to Fort Worth to go to Central Market. Is it really $2.99 for a single cucumber? So they are a little expensive but they had all the ingredients I needed. My wallet was $16 lighter leaving that store.
Following the directions was easy. I need to figure out a better way to cook the rice because I ended up with a layer of toasted rice on the bottom of the pot when done. I wonder if a double boiler would have worked better. I was really amazed how the rice reacted to the vinegar and became workable. I was worried about the way they were looking right up until the final cut when at last it began to look like sushi. I hope her class likes it.
