Starting in Valheim can be pretty confusing at first, and one of the basic needs of your character is food, which increases your health, stamina, and health regeneration.
While some Berries and Mushrooms can be found, different kinds of Meat offer better sustenance for your character.
The most basic kind of Meat is simply known as Raw Meat, and this can be cooked in order to allow your character to eat it.
Cooked Meat weighs 1.0 per piece and can stack up to 20 per item slot, making each full stack weigh 20 in your inventory.
