- 2 tablespoons gelatin
- 1⁄2 cup water
- 2 cups tomatoes, cooked (canned is fine)
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1 pinch pepper
- 1 bay leaf
- 1 stalk celery, minced
- 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
- 1 teaspoon onion juice
- 1 1⁄2 tablespoons gelatin
- 1⁄4 cup water
- 2 cups cottage cheese, sieved
- 3⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄8 teaspoon paprika
- 1⁄2 cup whole milk
- For the red gelatin: Soften gelatin in cold water for five minutes.
- Heat tomatoes, add seasonings, bay leaf, and celery; simmer for ten minutes.
- Add gelatin, vinegar and onion juice and stir until gelatin is dissolved; strain and pour into a fluted mold (a spritz of cooking spray in the mold before filling will facilitate unmolding of gelatin).
- Chill until firm.
- For the white mold: soften gelatin in water for five minutes.
- Combine cheese, salt, paprika and milk in the top of a double boiler.
- Heat; add dissolved gelatin and blend thoroughly.
- Pour into a fluted mold the same size as used for the tomato gelatin and chill until firm (a spritz of cooking spray in the mold before filling will facilitate unmolding of gelatin).
- Unmold both and cut each into the same number of wedges.
- Arrange alternating colors into ring (it will make two rings) on a pretty plate.
