Do not use ingredients while cooking
Note: This glitch works in v1.0.3. Select the ingredients to combine, then quickly press [Esc] as the "Cook" button is selected. If done correctly, the cooking window will close, the item will get made, but its ingredients will not be consumed. You can now make as many food items as desired, as long as you have at least one of each required ingredient.
