Double chocolate mousse

I was drooling from my friend's white chocolate moussecake.

But i'm not in the mood of baking cake. It's been hot lately.

So, mousse is my way out.

Homemade Apricot Jam.

From Martha Stewart 's recipes

Cut the apricots in half, and remove the pits. Reserve four or five pits, discarding the rest. Cut the apricots into 1-inch chunks. Wrap the pits in a kitchen towel, and bang on them with a hammer to break the hard outer shell. Discard the hard shell, and reserve the soft inner seed, which resembles an almond.

In a large heavy-bottomed pot, combine the apricots, sugar, soft inner seeds, and water. Stir to combine.

Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Cook, stirring frequently with a long wooden spoon and skimming foam as necessary, until reduced and thickened, about 15 minutes. Stir in the lemon juice.
