Glossary (talk like a chef): "Sieving"
To sieve means to pass a powder through a strainer with a fairly close mesh, to ensure that there is only a fine powder and no bits or lumps. Example:
"Sieving icing sugar."Meaning:
Tip the icing sugar into a sieve, then shake it until all the sugar falls through directly onto where it is to be used.
Note: "sieving" is not the same as passing through a sieve.
