Glossary (talk like a chef): Sieving


Sieving

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