Fruit and vegetable are plentiful in Jamaica, and are abundantly used in their food. The national dish, Ackee and saltfish, has local fruit Ackee, which is not grown anywhere else in the world. Meat recipes are also abundantly found, mainly using spices that are unique to Jamaica, such as the Jerk. There are many varieties of bread, too.
Some people in Jamaica prefer vegetarian food, and there are a host of vegetarian recipes which are very much Jamaica's own.
