Create golden apples. Place an apple in the center of the craft area and surround it completely with golden ingots (eight total). This will make a golden apple, an excellent healing and protection item that you can eat even with full hunger.
You used to be able to make a more powerful “Notch apple” in most versions of Minecraft by using gold blocks (see below) instead of ingots. This recipe was removed in Minecraft 1.9.
