How to make Suspicious Stew in Minecraft and what it does

Here we will explain how to make Suspicious Stew in Minecraft and what it does

Suspicious Stew in Minecraft is a unique food item that can be crafted with several kinds of flowers that offer a unique status effect based on the flower used to craft it.

How to craft Suspicious Stew in Minecraft

In short, to craft Suspicious Stew in Minecraft, you need to collect certain ingredients and then put them in a specific pattern in the crafting menu. With Suspicious Stew, you can use different flowers for varying effects, though some might not be good for you!

  • Brown Mushroom: You can find these growing in shady parts of forest biomes in Minecraft.
  • Red Mushroom: It also grows in shady parts of Forest biomes in the form of large red mushroom trees.
  • One Flower: You can use several kinds of flowers; we will have a list with all of them down below.
  • Bowel: One bowl is required to make the stew, and you can make one from three wood planks placed in both the top left and right slots and the middle slot in a crafting table.

Once you gathered the listed materials, place them in the pattern shown in the image above. However, before doing so, it's important to note that there is a unique status effect exclusive to it with the flower you use in the recipe. So with this in mind, if you check below, we will have a list of all flowers you can use to make Suspicious Stew in Minecraft and their respective status effects.

  • Wither Rose: Gives the player a wither status effect when consumed; this will harm the player every two seconds and turn your health bar black. If you want to find a Wither Rose, you will need to visit the nether, as it only drops from mobs killed there.
  • Dandelion: This will provide the player with a Saturation effect when consumed; this effect will fill your food bar. If you want to find Dandelions, you can find them growing in all biomes except swamps and ice plains. 
  • Poppy: When used to craft Suspicious Stew and then consumed, it will give the player the status effect of night vision. Poppies spawn and grow mostly in forest biomes and around villages, so look around there if you want to find one. 
  • Blue Orchid: This will provide the player with a Saturation effect when consumed; this effect will fill your food bar. If you want to find Blue Orchids, you can find them growing in taiga and swamp biomes.
  • Allium: When used to craft Suspicious Stew and then consumed, it will provide the player with a fire-resistance effect. If you want to find this flower, you can find it growing in flower forest biomes.

  • Red Tulip: Using this flower will make a Suspicious Stew that gives a weakness status effect; due to that, we recommend avoiding using this flower. Red Tulips tend to grow in plains, and flower forest biomes, so look there if you want one. As a side note, all tulips grow in the same biomes. 
  • Oxeye Daisy:  If you craft his flower into a Suspicious Stew and then consume it, you will get a regeneration effect that will heal you.
  • Orange Tulip: the player will get a weakness effect when a stew made with this flower is consumed. 
  • Azure Blue: The player will get a blindness effect when they consumed a stew made with this flower. If you want to find this flower, you can find it growing in flower forest, plains, and sunflower plains biomes.
  • Pink Tulip: Gives the player a weakness effect when consumed
  • Cornflower: Crafting this flower into a stew will provide a jump boost effect when consumed. If you want to find this flower, you can find it growing in plains and flower forest biomes.
  • White Tulip: Gives the player a weakness effect when consumed.
  • Lily of the Valley: Using this flower will make a Suspicious Stew that gives a poison status effect; due to that, we recommend avoiding using this flower. If you want to find Lily of the Valleys, you can only find it growing in forest biomes.

Once you get the flower you want, go back in this guide and follow the crafting pattern in the image we have listed to make the Suspicious Stew you want. It is also worth noting that some of these flowers will cause the stew to have adverse effects, so be sure to check before using a flower.
