Wipe your glass or pyrex dish with a little oil to help the jelly slip out in one piece later. Pour your mixture in and put it into the fridge to set. When set, remove it from the fridge. Your jelly will come out easier if you pull the jelly off the sides gentle with your fingers before tiping the dish upside down onto a flat surface.
