Sweet Fermented Rice

Ingredients<Serves 4>

【Main ingredients】

  • Sticky rice / 300g
  • Wine cake / 3g


          1. Soak glutinous rice for more than 6 hours. Remove the water from the soaked glutinous rice, place it on a steamer with a steaming cloth, and steam for about 1 hour.

          2. Rinse the steamed glutinous rice with water and cool slightly. Press the wine cake into powder, sprinkle it on the glutinous rice, and mix it slightly.

          3. Put the glutinous rice into the container. Use chopsticks to make a hole in the center without pressing it tightly. Cover with plastic wrap, poke some small holes with a toothpick, put it into the fuselage and cover it.

          4. Set the time to 24 to 48 hours and the temperature to 30 to 35°C. Generally, after one day of fermentation, you will see the sweet wine released from the glutinous rice. At this point, you can take it out, pour it into a clean container, and store it in the refrigerator.


          ・Eat the prepared sweet rice wine as soon as possible and do not keep it for a long time.
          ・Wine cakes can be purchased at grain and oil grocery stores.
