The Red Cap is a Vegetable food item that can be harvested on Red Mushrooms or Red Mushtrees. Eating it raw will restore 12.5 at the cost of 20 , making it unviable as a food source. However, it can be used as a Crock Pot filler without any health penalty. Red Caps can be dropped on the ground to indirectly damage Mobs if they eat it.
Cooked Red CapEdit
Cooked Red Cap is a Vegetable Food item made by Cooking a Red Cap on a fire (Campfire, Fire Pit, or a Dwarf Star). Unlike its raw counterpart, the Cooked Red Cap will not deduct any health points, instead restoring 1 . However, it will now take away 10 instead, while restoring no hunger. The Cooked red cap can also be used as fuel.
