One of the first recipes you’re introduced to in Tears of the Kingdom is Sauteed Peppers, which protects you against the harsh cold. But what about a dish that will protect you from the intense heat? How can you make Chilly Simmered Fruit in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom?
How to Get Chilly Simmered Fruit in Tears of the Kingdom (TOTK)
If you’ve played Breath of the Wild, you likely remember the extremely helpful dish Chilly Simmered Fruit. A dish that’s easy to make because of its flexible recipe but beloved because of its ability to give Link heat resistance.
In TotK, the method to make it is the same familiar combination. Here’s how to make Chilly Simmered Fruit:
- One other fruit (apples, bananas, wild berries, whatever)
And, yeah. That’s really it. But one issue people consistently run into is finding Hydromelons in the first place. But there is one place to find them reliably, and that’s Gerudo Desert. If an area is arid, capable of burning the skin off your bones, and sandy, it’s a place ripe for Hydromelons. And this makes sense, as icy mountains are speckled with peppers, so deserts get melons. It’s just the game’s way of trying to help you not die.
Hydromelons can also eventually be grown in your own personal plot in Hateno Village, which will make things much easier. It’s also worth noting that the more Hydromelons you put into a recipe, the longer the heat resistance buff will be.
