Obtaining rotten flesh in Minecraft
There are a few ways in which players can obtain rotten flesh in Minecraft.
The most popular way to obtain rotten flesh is by killing zombies. Drowned, husks, zombie horses, and zombie villagers also drop rotten flesh if they are killed by a player.
Zoglins in the nether realm drop 1-3 rotten flesh depending on the level of looting enchantment. Zombified piglins also drop rotten flesh upon death.
Players can also obtain rotten flesh by fishing or from chest loot. Dungeons, desert temples, igloos, jungle temples, underwater ruins, villages and woodland mansions are all possible locations for chest loot. Most of these locations have over a 50% chance of spawning at least one rotten flesh in a chest.
Uses of rotten flesh in-game
Rotten flesh may seem useless at first, but it has a few helpful uses in a Minecraft survival world.
Players who are in the midst of a famine can use rotten flesh as the last resort for food. Rotten flesh can restore up to four hunger bars at once, but it has an 80% chance of inflicting the "hunger" effect for 30 seconds.
Rotten flesh can also be used to tame and breed wolves, as shown in the picture above. Villagers with the profession "Cleric" offer emeralds for rotten flesh as well, which can be very helpful if players have a gold farm.
