    Rinse rice, place in pot with water and salt. Cover and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and cook for 50 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to steam-cook another 10 minutes. Turn out into a large bowl and allow to cool. Drizzle rice with Mirin and cut into still-warm rice with a wooden spoon. Meanwhile cut vegetables and set aside. Assembly: Have ready a small bowl of water to be used for moistening your hands and the Nori. Lay Nori sheet on bamboo sushi mat or towel, shiny side down. Moisten hands, then take a handful of rice and place it on Nori sheet.
