Rice wine can be characterized as a rich-flavored liquid. This delicacy is also known as yellow wine. This is created from glutinous rice and is used for cooking and drinking. Majority of people prefer using rice wine for cooking than other wines because they have a lower alcohol content level. Long time ago and up until now, the best tasting and most famous rice wines have come from Shaoxing, in Zhejiang a province of China.

It is very important for you to know that wines that are coming from Asia are usually good for cooking, and they are well-loved by most chefs.

What you will be needing:

- a 1/4 Chinese yeast ball - 4 cups of glutinous rice, it should be raw.

- 1 tsp all-purpose flour - Medium-sized tray - Rice steamer or any similar - Container with lid - Airtight bottle or jar - Tray


- The very first step for you to do is to soak raw the glutinous rice in hot water for about 1 hour.

- After an hour, drain the rice and then steam the rice in a steamer or colander above boiling water for 25 minutes

- When the 25 minutes steaming time is over, spread the rice out on a tray for 2 hours and let it cool down.

- You can grind the cheese yeast so that it will form into a uniform powder and then mix it with the flour while waiting for the rice to cool down.

- Mix it with the yeast mixture using your hand until it is evenly blended by the time your rice has cool down.

- Transfer the mixture into the container that you prepared with lid and cover tightly. Let the mixture to ferment in a warm and dry place for 1 month.

- Strain the rice mixture to separate the rice (mash) from the liquid (rice wine).
Wrap the mash in cheesecloth or any similar material to extract the remaining rice wine.

- You can now place the wine in a container and cover. Place it inside the refrigerator to stop the wine from fermenting and turning into wine. Normally, wine will turn into amber to black color when aging.

Rice wine can also be added to your foods when cooking and they can also be used as a marinade. It is also great tasting and healthy!
