  2. Thank you Fahd. I am trying to get rid of my brown spots on the face by eating winter melons but they are hard a bit of a chore to peel and cut so when I read about winter jam, it made me wonder how it's made and is it as fresh as the actual melon or are there preservatives in it...Do you have any recommendations on what foods are good to eat in addition to winter melons, on getting rid of melasma on the face? Thanks again !
