Red spice is one of four spices used on stew to make spicy stew. The Freeing Evil Dave subquest of Recipe for Disaster must be completed to obtain these in Evil Dave's Basement of Doom in Edgeville. Sending your cat to catch Hell-Rats yields between 1 to 4 doses of any of the spice colours and the Hell-Rat Behemoth in the northern room always drop 4 doses of the spice they guard. Spices of the same colour can be used on each other to combine up to 4 doses to save space. Once all doses are used it becomes an empty spice shaker.

Spicy stews containing red spice temporarily boost or drain the stats of Attack, Strength, Defence, Ranged, and/or Magic. A single dose causes those stats to increase or decrease by a maximum of +1 or -1, while two doses affect those stats by -3 or +3, up to a maximum of -5 or +5 with three doses. Red spice is a not very useful because combat skills have much easier to obtain boosts that also reliably boost the skills much higher, however it can be used in place of Magic potions before access to late game boosts are obtained for an extra +1 boost.

The item's values were increased from 1 to 110, 120, 130, and 140, so they would always appear above ashes.
