It takes six in-game hours to produce Truffle Oil in Stardew Valley. This Artisan Good is listed as a “gourmet cooking ingredient,” but you can’t really use it in any recipe. However, you need them to make Rain Totems, which can be used to bring rain to your farm on command. Here’s what you need to get started.
How to Make Truffle Oil in Stardew Valley
To make truffle oil in Stardew Valley, you just have to place a truffle into the oil maker. Although that might sound simple enough, you first need to know how to make the oil maker and where to get truffles.
In order to get the oil maker built, you need 50 slimes, 20 Hardwood, and one Gold Bar. You can use it to make more a few different kinds of oil. Once you have your oil maker, it is time to get you some truffles.
The Truffle is a type of mushroom that pigs spawn on the farm. To make that happen, the pig must be outside the barn. Truffles are worth a lot of gold. Note that pigs do not go out of the barn in the winter, which causes them not to spawn any truffles. Once you have your pigs and you get yourself some truffles, you can start making your own truffle oil.
Besides using it to make Rain Totems, you can sell them for 1,065g, or 1491g if you’re an Artisan. Most Villagers will like to receive truffle oil as a gift, and Harvey will love it. On the other hand, Jas, Sebastian, and Vincent hate it, so maybe give them something else instead.
Another thing that you can use it for is tailoring. You can create the dyable Dark Bandana Shirt by using the artisan good in the spool of the Sewing Machine. Finally, there is a quest where Mayor Lewis requests truffle oil by mail. You just have to wait until you receive a letter with the request.
