Step by Step Method

Step 1

Place all the ingredients except gelatin sheets in a medium bowl and mix well.

Step 2

Line a deep bowl with a double layer of cheesecloth. Pour the salsa in to the center and gather the cloth around it tightly, to create a bundle. Tie the bundle together tightly with a long length of kitchen twine, then tie the string around the handle of a wooden spoon, making sure the bundle is close to the handle. Suspend the bundle over another deep bowl to catch the liquid. Refrigerate overnight.

Step 3

Remove the salsa from the fridge and gently squeeze the bundle to drain any remaining liquid int the bowl. Leave the bundle suspended over the bowl and let the liquid stand until it comes to room temperature.

Step 4

Remove and discard the bundle and measure the liquid. Put 2 1/2 gelatin sheets for every 1 cup of liquid in a large bowl and cover with cool water. Let stand for 5 minutes.

Step 5

Squeeze the excess water from the softened gelatin sheets, then put the sheets in a small saucepan over low heat and stir constantly until the gelatin is completely melted.

When the jelly is set, cut into 1/4 to 1/2 inch squares and transfer to a nice bowl. Serve with good quality tortilla chips or...???
