Golden Apples are a food item. They are moderately difficult to obtain, but are one of the most beneficial food items, along with Golden Carrot. They are extremely rarely (about 0.66% chance) found in dungeon and stronghold chests, though they can also be obtained by crafting an Apple and eight Gold Nuggets together. Eating one not only restores , but grants "enhanced regeneration" for 5 seconds, healing up to 4 () health over that time. They can be eaten for the regeneration even if you are full. When fed to Zombie Villagers under the effects of a Potion of Weakness, they will eventually be cured.
