Ned is shown resurrecting parts of organisms, notably the pieces of fruit for his pies and individual leaves. This is completely inconsistent throughout the series, as Ned doesn't revive wooden furniture, paper, sticks and so on. Similarly he can revive the skins of taxidermied animals and bear skin rugs but doesn't revive wool sweaters. He doesn't eat pies made with revived fruit because it would rot again but food derived from other animal and plant sources doesn't revive. See more
