Alchemy is a skill in The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind. It is similar to alchemy in Oblivion, required to identify certain properties of ingredients and to craft potions. The potions are used to aid you with special attributes and benefits like healing, shielding, and many others. The higher your alchemy skills then the better you can identify properties for ingredients and get better effects for your potions.
Ingredients can be collected from creatures' body and plants, found in various containers in towns and buildings, and bought from individuals throughout the world.
The simplest use of your Alchemy skill is eat ingredients in order to experience the benefits of that ingredient. Highlight an ingredient from your inventory menu to see what effects it offers. If you see slots with a question mark in them, this basically means your skill is not high enough to determine that effect.
