First, measure the amount of rice accurately. Pour the rice into a bowl with plenty of water at once to rinse the rice. Once the white turbid water has been thrown away, the rice is removed. Grab the rice gently with your hands and grind it in small rhythmically as you rub the rice together. It is an image of removing the bran film on the surface of rice. After turning it to some extent, rinse it with water and repeat the same work, and finish in 2-3 times. Then, expose to water until the turbidity disappears and give to a colander.

 今回はシャリの炊き方をご紹介いたします。 シャリは寿司調理の中でも最重要課題ですので、お米の研ぎ方、炊き方、酢の合わせ方の3回に分けてご紹介いたします。

今回は最初の研ぎ方です。 まず正確にお米の分量を測ります。そのお米を水をたっぷり貯めたボールに一気に流し入れてお米を洗い流します。 白い濁りの出た水を一旦捨てたらお米をといで行きます。 手でお米を優しく掴むようにして小刻みにリズミカルにお米を擦り合わせるように研いでいきます。お米の表面の膜を外して行くイメージです。 ある程度廻したら一旦水で洗い流しまた同じ作業を行ない、2~3回で終了です。 その後濁りが無くなるまで水で晒してからザルにあげます。ザルにあげて10分ほど放置します。
