Question #5: Rice Vinegar & Rice Wine Vinegar

This question comes to us from Stephanie P. in NM:

Are Rice Vinegar & Rice Wine Vinegar the same thing? Many recipes call for Rice Wine Vinegar but I have only found Rice Vinegar.

It's the same thing. There are different types of Rice vinegar: Black, white, red.
Part of that variety is "seasoned" rice vinegar and "plain" rice vinegar. "Seasoned" rice vinegar has salt & sugar added and then aged. An example of "seasoned" rice vinegar is Mirim that's added when making sushi.
