Eating for Warmth
These recipes grant the following effect:
Cold Weather Def Up: +15 Cold Weather Defense for 240 seconds
Warmth (cold weather) recipes:
Gaberry Jam – Gaberries x 4
– Grants 150 food value and Stamina Recovery 2 + Cold Weather Def Up
– Gaberries are plentiful but there are other uses for them, like eating directly or making Meat Stew, so sacrificing 4 may be a bit much for just a little extra stamina regen and this effect. However…
Gaberry Tartine (3 servings) – Any Bread, Gaberry Jam
– Grants 125 food value and Stamina Recovery 2 + Cold Weather Def Up
– Essentially the same as Gaberry Jam, but you get 3 portions by spreading it on some bread, thus getting much more out of those 4 Gaberries you initially used. Consider, though, that there may be other recipes for bread later in the game and, though it is cheap at only 1 silver, merchants do not have it in infinite supply (AFAIK) and you can’t cook bread yourself.
Bitter Spicy Tea – Water + Ochre Spice Beetle
– Cures Infection, restores 15 Burnt Stamina, and grants Cold Weather Defense Up
– A really great item for its many effects, including curing Infection which is easy to contract and deadly. However, Pungent Paste is a better use of the Ochre Spice Beetle if you aren’t dealing with cold weather.
