I have a question. The recipe calls for both rice vinegar and rice wine vinegar.
Aren't they the same thing ?
Donna John
Rice wine is different than rice wine vinegar. You could use sherry instead of you can't find it.

Thank you. I tried to google it but everything said they're the same. I appreciate the suggestion
