What is campfire in Minecraft?

A campfire is a light source in Minecraft that can be used to provide light. It also provides protection against hostile mobs at night. Once created, a campfire will continue to stay lit until it is extinguished by the player.

Campfires have many uses in Minecraft, one of which is to cook food. Once you start killing mobs, such as pigs, rabbits, or catch fish with your fishing rod, you will start receiving the food raw.

Using raw food is not good for your health and regeneration possibilities, as you will be getting less hearts filled. Thus, if you eat your food uncooked, you will be wasting your food resources.
