Seasoned Rice Vinegar
Seasoned rice vinegar is rice vinegar with sugar (and sometimes sake) added. You can make your own by combining a 3-to-1 ratio of rice vinegar to sugar and a pinch of salt; stir until sugar dissolves.
It's lightly flavored and light colored vinegar with sugar and salt and sold commercially in glass or clear plastic bottles.
Selecting and Buying
Preparation and Use
The sweet notes of rice vinegar are often best paired with sesame oil. If you use toasted sesame oil, which can be quite smoky in flavor, you may want to use one of the darker rice vinegar variants, so the oil taste won’t completely overwhelm the vinegar. Consider black or red rice vinegar for dressing and white rice vinegar, or seasoned rice vinegar in other dishes.
Conserving and Storing
Store in a cool, dry, dark kitchen cabinet or pantry. Best if stored in a glass jar or bottle with a tight lid. It has a long shelf life if properly stored.
