Royal jelly is a rare resource obtained with an apiary.
The royal jelly found in the hives across the Far, Far Range is special as it is unnaturally sweet compared to other varieties. It's believed that this is a result of bees collecting small deposits of slime from honey slimes and working it into their royal jelly mixture. If a rancher is lucky enough to acquire some, they'll find its unique properties are very valuable in certain Slime Science endeavors.

Recipes that use Royal Jelly
- The Royal Jelly's caption "The king of all jellies... that is, until you meet the queen." is a reference to two enemies from Nick Popovich's previous game, Spiral Knights; the Royal Jelly and the Ice Queen.
- In the real world, Royal Jelly is substance secreted by worker bees that is fed to Larvae. When a queen dies or is too weak, multiple larvae are selected to be fed large amounts of it to induce development into a queen. The protein that induces the development is named "Royalactin". It is sold and consumed by humans as a dietary supplement, though there is no evidence to suggest there are any health benefits; in fact it may cause allergic reactions.
