Now if you have some tips on cleaning the sieve afterward...Well, I just made another batch of this soup to test the recipe. Besides fine-tuning it, I also came up with the following method of cleaning the sieve that works surprisingly well.
I usually rise it upside down under running water to dislodge most of the pulp. I can also get some more of it out by swishing it up and down in a full sink, but even that tends to recapture some of the floating pulp like a butterfly net, and it wastes a lot of water.
Can you recommend a better method?
As soon as you finish using the sieve, rinse it upside down under the kitchen faucet to remove most of the stuff stuck in it. Then take it to the bathroom and rinse it upside down under the bath tub faucet. It's much stronger than your kitchen one and will dislodge whatever is stuck faster. The reason you rinse under the kitchen faucet first is because you probably don't want big chunks of corn in your bath tub.
