Maize can be found growing in the wild between the seasons of Spring and Late Summer, and has a chance to regenerate during those seasons every year. Harvest the plant to obtain maize seeds as well as an average of 32 oz of maize if the crop is mature. Maize requires a minimum temperature of 8℃ to grow, and a minimum temperature of 0℃ to stay alive. Maize is a Nutrient A crop.
- Main article: Food
Maize can be eaten directly, or turned into bread. Cornmeal dough and cornmeal are inedible. Consuming maize replenishes the grain nutrient category.
Processing maize into bread doubles it's weight, providing more food from each harvest. First, the maize ground in a quern to produce cornmeal. Next, the cornmeal is hydrated with a bucket of fresh water to produce dough which is double the weight. If the cornmeal weighs more than 80 oz, crafting the dough will leave the cornmeal in the crafting grid, minus the 80 oz used to create a max weight piece of dough. Finally, the dough can be cooked in either are firepit or a forge to produce edible bread.
