We've made a spiny lobster dish with pigeon peas, coconut milk and rice and a callaloo before but that's about it as far as Jamaican food. The lobster dish and rice recipe was a recipe printed in the paper from a local restaurant, Jamaican owned/run. It was good but spicy as it had scotch bonnets in it. Don't know what happened to recipe though as it's been a long time. Easily found by Googling the rice recipe though. Callaloo is ubiquitous throughout the Caribbean with minor differences from island to island and you just need to find a Jamaican culture site that has a recipe. They are rather easily found as noted above.

BTW, just as history, I've been to multiple islands, including Jamaica, throughout the Caribbean in my younger years.

With such a strong negative attitude toward the cuisine, why do you even want to bother about it? You already have your mind made up that you are not going to enjoy it.
