How to Get Cold Resistance in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom

Now that you’ve found some Spicy Peppers, you’ll need to cook them to be able to obtain the Cold Resistance needed to travel in the cold.

If you have multiple Peppers, I’ve found that it’s best to hold as many as possible before cooking. This will allow you to make your Cold Resistance timer as long as possible. Simply hold your Spicy Peppers in-hand, and drop them into a Cooking Pot. The result will be a hot plate of Spicy Sauteed Peppers.

Eating the Spicy Sauteed Peppers will provide Cold Resistance with a length depending on how many Peppers you were holding. The max Cold Resistance timer for Spicy Sauteed Peppers is 12 minutes and 30 seconds.

Now that you know where to find Spicy Peppers in Tears of the Kingdom, it’s time to get out there and explore the frozen wastelands!
