How to Prepare Carrots for Sushi

Small, sweet carrots work best for making sushi. Choose a variety that has a vivid orange color.

Above: Peel and cut the carrots into thin carrot sticks.

Above: To create carrot sticks of the same size, invest in a mandolin. This kitchen utensil really does speed up the preparation process.

Dissolve 200ml rice wine vinegar with 1 tablepoon of sugar and a large pinch of salt. Place your carrots sticks in an air-proof container, and cover with the vinegar solution. Keep the container in the fridge for several hours until the carrot sticks are "floppy". Rinse before use.
