Stardew Valley: How to Make Truffle Oil

How to make your own Truffle Oil in Stardew Valley.

There aren't a ton of uses for Truffle Oil in Stardew Valley, the two most obvious being the quest Mayor Lewis gives you in Summer of the second year and the oil being a potential turn-in for the Artisan Bundle. Whichever purpose you need it for, you'll have to learn how to make Truffle Oil yourself.

Stardew Valley: How to Make Truffle Oil

As with other Artisan Goods, you'll need to first craft a station to make Truffle Oil. That's the Oil Maker.

The recipe for Truffle Oil is really just the item itself: One Truffle Oil only requires one Truffle to be made. Making it is really quite easy, but getting the Truffle might be more of a problem.

Stardew Valley: How to Craft an Oil Maker

Once you reach farming Level 8, you will be able to craft your own Oil Maker in the crafting menu. For that, you'll need:

  • 50 Slime
  • 20 Hardwood
  • 1 Gold Bar

After you've made it, place it on your farm and get ready to make some oil! Well, if you've got a Truffle anyway.

How to Get Truffles

It might come as a surprise, but Truffles are spawned from Pigs when they're let outside. Pigs cost 16,000 gold and require you have the Deluxe Barn built, which is a considerable investment as it is the second upgrade to the Barn.

It takes 10 days for a Pig to mature, after which it will start to sniff out Truffles on your property as long as it's fed and has clean areas to walk.

Getting Pigs, and ultimately Truffles, is not necessarily an early-game goal which is presumably why Mayor Lewis doesn't ask for the Truffle Oil until the middle of Year 2.

That's it for all you need to know about making Truffle Oil in Stardew Valley. Check out our other Stardew Valley guides here on GameSkinny.
