I thought it would be good if there would be sugar and sugarcane. The sugarcane would be located in the jungle and you would make sugar from it. Here are some crafting recipes:
Sugarcane+sharp stone=cut sugar cane plantsugarcane
Cut sugarcane+flint chip=cut sugarcane+bowl=sugar in a bowl
Cut sugarcane without sugar+steel axe or stone hatchet=kindling
I will find out some more recipes in the future.
I hope you will like my idea
