Method-
Place the apricots in a pan with the liquid in which they were soaked,adding more water if necessary to cover. Simmer for 20-30 minutes until tender.
Place the apricots and liquid in blender with lemon juice and honey and blend unti very smooth. Add water to make up 3 cups if necesary.

I love that jelly, Sowmya! I haven't tried my hand at making any before, but this is inspiring. Is the gelatine absolutely necessary, in your opinion? I ask because gelatin has animal ingredients and is therefore not something I would use.

@vaishali-
You need some agent to solidify (to gel)your liquid mixture..so gelatin is quite necesary..I am not sure if there is solidifying agent free of animal ingredients as you say...But will let you know when I find out!!
