Passing through a sieve

To push a fairly thick preparation through a"sieve", usually with a maryse, thus removing any remaining lumps. The aim is to produce something totally smooth in texture.

Example: "Passing potato purée through a sieve"
Meaning: Put the purée into a sieve, then press with a maryse or spatula using a to-and-fro movement until it has all been pushed through.

Note: "Passing through a sieve" is not the same as sieving.
