    Can of spinach

    Not sure how to make this item really
    Can of spinach-ups your strength by 10 points for 10 minutes afterwards your strength drops 1 point per minute until it reaches your original strength score
    What do you think & how would you fine people make it?

    Presuming you're DM? As written? Seems incredibly powerful for the right character. And limited...so works just fine.

    Maybe add in a fishy aftertaste, a craving for olives, and/or rippling forearms if you feel the need to egg.

    They already have this. It's called Potion of Giant Strength. Reflavor it as a can of spinach and you're golden.

    Technically this can bypass even the Legendary Potion of Giant Strength, so it's rarity would need to be high even with only 10-20 minutes instead of an hour.

    And, just so you know, canning, as such, is an invention of the 19th century. Bottles, jars, and cans regular enough for the purpose imply a whole lot of other technology that may not fit in your game world.

    Yes, might seem odd, but since it's a can of spinach, I'm assuming a certain amount of whimsy.
    Also, the typical "medieval" DnD campaign often contains a lot of elected officials, peasants who are free to wander where they will, a mix of arms and armour from various cultures and time periods, light sticks, tanglefoot bags, heaps of gold, little actual trade, and so on. Canning? Why not?

    I imagine it's the rare and special canning process that give the spinach it's special potency. The manufacturer also makes Cans of Worms and Cans of Whoop-Ass.
