Jamaican Porridge Recipes Try One A Day!

These Jamaican porridge recipes are easy to try and the end result is superbly delicious.

Most Jamaicans are usually used to preparing the usual Jamaican cornmeal porridge, but there are more porridges found in our culinary catalogue and I am about to reveal some of the more popular ones below. Jamaicans make porridges from almost anything. We use cornmeal, green bananas, green plantains, rice, oats (oatmeal), samola, cream of wheat, and any other ingredient we feel fit to experiment with. Porridges we generally made to be served as a breakfast menu item, however, because of the texture of some of these porridges, they are also consumed at dinner time as a substitute for a heavier meal. All the porridges that are featured on this site are sweetened to taste using the usual sweeteners and flavour blasters. Substitutes are suggested for persons who are lactose intolerant as well as for those persons of Rastafarian belief.

Therefore, you should not have any issues as it relates to preparing your Jamaican porridges to suit your taste because the end result is really what you make it. Now without any further delays…

…Here are the most famous and most prepared Jamaican porridges to date, in no particular order:
