Minecraft resource gathering/Apple
All you need to do to gather an apple is cut down an oak tree and wait for the leaves to decay. You have a 1 in 200 chance of getting an apple from 1 oak leaf. This can be accomplished in a variety of ways, typically with an axe of some sort for efficiency.
An apple restores 4 food points,and 8 gold surronding an apple makes a Golden Apple,which give Regeneration II for 5 seconds and Absorption for 2 minutes.
