The Cooking Pot is a new item provided by the Farmer’s Delight mod. It’s required to start crafting some new dishes and meals.
Crafting the Cooking Pot
One of the first things you need to do is actually craft a Cooking Pot. They’re relatively cheap to craft, as they only require a Bucket of Water, 5 Iron Ingots, 2 Bricks and 1 Wood Shovel.
You’ll receive the Cooking Pot in return, which can be placed down. Though to actually use the Cooking Pot, it needs to be placed on a heat source, such as a Fire, Lava, Magma Block, Campfire or Stove.
When a Cooking Pot is active and functional, it will be indicated by boiling bubbles and steam, which will rise from the pot.
Using the Cooking Pot
When you right click the Cooking Pot, an interface will appear. Firstly, there’s 6 slots. This is where ingredients should be placed, where they’ll be combined and turned into a dish. There’s also a slot for a container, such as a Bowl.
Once a dish is created, it will be placed in the right slot. Once a container is added, the meal will be added to the container, and it can be placed in your own inventory and consumed.
On average, it takes around 10 seconds for a recipe to cook inside the Cooking Pot. 64 servings can be stored inside the Cooking Pot, at which point a suitable container will need to be added.
Cooking Pot Recipes
With the Vanilla version of Farmer’s Delight installed, there are 24 different recipes that can be created inside the Cooking Pot.
The easiest way to view them would be by using a mod such as Just Enough Items for Forge, or Roughly Enough Items for Fabric. Then, you can press U while hovering over a Cooking Pot to see every recipe it’s used in.
