Blue Caps are Vegetable Food Items that can be harvested on Blue Mushrooms or Blue Mushtrees. Raw Blue Caps have the most positive effects of all the Mushrooms. When eaten raw, they restore 20 Health Meter.png and 12.5 Hunger Meter.png at the cost of 15 Sanity Meter.png. They can also be used as Crock Pot filler with a 0.5 vegetable value. In Don't Starve Together, the Toadstool has a chance to drop Blue Cap upon death. Blue Caps are required to craft Nightflyer Lures and the Blue Funcap. A Mushroom Planter can be used to grow Blue Mushrooms by planting a Blue Cap or Blue Mushroom Spores in it.

Did I make it better or worse?


A Cooked Blue Cap is a Vegetable Food Item made by Cooking a Blue Cap on a fire (Campfire, Fire Pit, or a Dwarf Star). Unlike its raw counterpart, the Cooked Blue Cap will take away 3 Health Meter.png and instead restore 10 Sanity Meter.png when eaten, not affecting hunger at all.

Prototype.png Tips

  • Raw and Cooked Blue Caps can be eaten together to increase all three stats. Eating one raw Blue Cap and two cooked Blue Caps results in +14 Health Meter.png, +12.5 Hunger Meter.png, and +5 Sanity Meter.png.
  • Using Blue Caps alongside Taffy is a great combo, as Taffy restores the exact amount of sanity lost from eating the Blue Cap.
  • A raw Blue Cap and a cooked Green Cap can be eaten together to provide +19 Health Meter.png, +12.5 Hunger Meter.png, and +0 Sanity Meter.png.
  • Raw Blue Caps can be found in plentiful amounts around the Blue Mushtree biome in the caves, which can be used for emergency healing and hunger restoration.
