Best Food Recipe for Castleville Analysis

Depending on the stage that you are in Castleville, crafting food becomes good for you to obtain more Castleville Energy.

Below I will analyze the different Castleville food recipes and determine which one is the best one for the energy. Because different food recipes have different building blocks. I will start with the fundamentals food ingredients and move on to the final kitchen food products. I will assume the worst case scenario where you will plant and harvest. For situations where you can obtain the products other than animal tending or farming will be noted.

For the following Castleville Food recipe analysis to work, I have made the following assumptions:
1. I will assume that time for farming is negligible because the cooking time is high themselves in the current version. Read For the list of Castleville crops.
2. I also assume that no Castleville beasties are involved in the crafted food calculation.
3. Chicken Meat will be obtained roughly 1 out of 4. Which means 4 energy = 1 Chicken
4. Lastly, I will assume that no energy will be used for items that you can request from neighbor, for example: Flax.

These ingredients cannot be used themselves directly. These basic materials are crafted in kitchen directly through harvested plants as well as animal tending.
