            How to Cook Sushi Rice - Clearspring

Clearspring's organic, premium quality rice is ideal for preparing sushi as well as everyday rice dishes. This short grain rice is light and sticky and remains soft after cooking. We have carefully selected this Selenio variety as it has the same characteristics as the rice that is traditionally used in Japanese cooking.
