Lichen is a Food item in Don't Starve. It is classified as a Vegetable, and can only be obtained in the Ruins by harvesting Cave Lichen. Lichen cannot be cooked at a Fire PitCampfire or Star Caller's Staff. It can be used as an ingredient in a Crock Pot.

Lichen can be eaten raw and can restore 3 HealthMeter.png and 12.5 Hunger.png, at the cost of 5 Sanity.png. Sanity penalty can be avoided by using it in the Crock Pot instead. Unagi recipe in the Crock Pot specifically requires Lichen, however Lichen can also be used as a filler. Lichen spoils very quickly, and becomes Rot 2 days after being harvested.
