Essential Food Mod


Essential Food Mod – Has there ever been a time where pigs, chicken, and cows been scarce, but you still need food? Then this mod is for you!

The Essential Food Mod is a mod for Minecraft that makes it so lambs and squid drop edible food too, similar to what the chicken, pigs, and cows do. This means that squids drop raw squid meat, and lambs drop raw lamb meat. The unique thing about this mod is that you can also cook the meat, similar to how you cook chicken, pig, and cow meat. When you cook squid meat, it turns into calamari, which is actually really good in real life too. When you cook the raw lamb meat, it turns into lamb chops. I have never eaten lamb before, but I’d imagine it would taste something like chicken, but with a slight pork taste.

Anyways, this mod is practically useless when it comes to the creative portion of Minecraft, considering you are invincible, but it has a great impact when it comes to the survival portion of Minecraft. For example, let’s say you create a new world and spawn on an island and land is nowhere to be seen. Instead of just quitting and creating a new world, you could test your survival skills, while still making it possible to survive. Another example is if you spawn in grassland, and only sheep and a few cows spawn occasionally. Instead of hunting the cows down, only to regain the hunger you wasted trying to find the cows, you can just hunt down the sheep that are easily available to your disposal. Now for some screenshots.
