Minecraft food recipes & avoiding starvation
So you made it through the night without becoming a creeper-snack – congratulations. By now though, you’re probably feeling a bit peckish. Use the cobblestones you gathered from the mine to make a furnace, then stock up on charcoal by burning spare wood. Now, throw some of the raw beef or pork you collected earlier into the furnace to make steaks or pork chops. These are the most nutritious foods in Minecraft (of the foods that aren’t made from precious metals at least), replenishing hunger at a rate of 1.6 units per item.
Hunger isn’t as simple as avoiding the depletion of the food bar – not only will you lose health when this happens, you’ll also lose the ability to restore health if it drops below 90%, and lose the ability to sprint if it drops below 30%. It’s a good idea to keep a big old reserve of pork chops and steaks on you at all times, then. If you get really desperate, you can always resort to spider eyes. In addition to being one of the least appetising foodstuffs of all time, these actually poison you – but if you can consume enough to get the hunger bar above 90% you’ll regenerate health anyway.
