Photo: Armenian Walnut Jam

The precise origins of jam making or preserved fruit remains a matter of debate among historians,  it is said that jam making originated in the middle east and that the first known book of recipes, “Of Culinary Matters”, written by the Roman gastronome Marcus Gavius Apicius in the first century, includes recipes for jams. Returning Crusaders first introduced jam and jelly to Europe and by the late Middle Ages, jams, jellies and fruit conserves were widely popular.
A specialty of Armenian preserved fruits is the Armenian Walnut Jam, or as Armenians call it “Popoki Murhaba”. 
Fresh baby walnuts are picked green from the tree before they have a chance to harden. The walnuts are submerged in a simple syrup of water, raw sugar cane sugar, and lemon juice, until they are supple and ready to be eaten.  These sweet, nutty bites serve as an ideal garnish cocktails, ice cream, cheeses, charcuterie, game dishes and foie gras.
Customary late meals before sleeping are very light, with herbal or western tea, bread and jam, perhaps matsun (mah-TSOON, yogurt).
If you feel like making this Armenian Walnut jam at home, here is one recipe, make sure to scale these ingredients as appropriate:

1 1/2 lbs of fresh, green walnuts (about 23-30, depending on size)
1 1/2 lbs of sugar
3 1/4 cups of water
1-2 tbsp of lemon juice
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla extract (or 1/2 vanilla bean)
4 cloves or 1 tsp cardamom
1 lb pickling lime (optional; called kir/gir by Armenians, and cal in Mexican groceries)

The Who - Armenia City in the Sky

If you’re troubled and you can’t relax
Close your eyes and think of this
If the rumors floating in your head all turn to facts
Close your eyes and think of this

Armenia, city in the sky
Armenia, city in the sky

If you ever want to lose some time
Just take off, there’s no risk
If you ever want to disappear
Just take off, and think of this

Armenia, city in the sky
Armenia, city in the sky

The sky is glass, the sea is brown
And everyone is upside-down

Armenia, city in the sky
Armenia, city in the sky

Freak out!
Freak out!

Nowhere? People live there. That whole block has been given to a land developer and is scheduled for demolition. The people living there are refusing to leave. You can read more about it here
