  6. Pack the mango, peaches, and onion into a one-quart jar, pour in the hot brine and add the sachet. Let it cool completely. Cover and refrigerate overnight or up to a week.
  7. Boil rice according to package instructions with salt and pepper. Once rice is finished, drain and fluff with a fork. Dress with vinegar and mirin, stir to coat.
  8. Bring small pot of water to a rolling boil. Gently place eggs into water with a slotted spoon and boil for 5 minutes. Remove eggs from water and place into an ice bath to stop cooking. Peel shells from eggs and cut into halves.
