Whether you call it jam, jelly or preserve - this delicious treat is another traditional method of larder preservation. From the very proper English scones with jam and cream to your humble jam on toast, this old favorite is enjoyed worldwide by people from all walks of life.
But did you know this humble treat had a rather illustrious beginning? Although historians can't pinpoint an exact date, it is widely believed that cooks in the Middle East were the first to make fruit jams and preserves. It might have been during the 4th Century or even earlier. The first mention of fruit preserves (made using honey) can be found in the oldest surviving cookbook from antiquity called "De Re Coquinaria", The Art of Cooking. The book is believed to date back to the late 4th or early 5th century and is attributed to one Marcus Gavius Apicius, the famed epicure who lived during the reign of Tiberius, early in the first century AD.

Throughout the course of human history, there have been two things that have never failed to bring a community together: music and food. At Pariah Recorders, an analog-equipped recording studio in Atlanta, Georgia, the combination proves even more effective, drawing together an enclave of artists and creatives just north of the city of lights.
Boasting an analog-outfitted live room with in-house photography, publicity, booking, and artist management, the close-knit team runs the studio, manages the official site and social media channels, films the videos, and builds the studio fittings - like the custom console desk and tape machine case. The team also mans the grills outside when work is done, offering a fully immersive live, work, and play experience to the artists who come to write or record their next album.
This group is great on the grill! Try TJ's Prime Rib Roast, cooked on the Big Green Egg!
