Stardew Valley – how to make pumpkin soup
While it’s possible to buy ready-made Pumpkin Soup from the Traveling Merchant’s booth or Krobus’ shop, it’s much more satisfying (and cost-effective) to cook it yourself.
To obtain the recipe for Pumpkin Soup, you’ll need to befriend Robin. She’s one of the most helpful characters in the game, as she can assist you in constructing buildings and will occasionally give you valuable materials. Once you’ve gained seven Friendship Hearts with her, Robin will mail you the recipe for Pumpkin Soup.
There are several ways to increase your friendship with Robin. One option is to give her gifts that she loves, such as Goat Cheese, Spaghetti, or Peaches. These items will reward you with 80 friendship points each. Alternatively, you can give her gifts that she likes, such as any type of fruit, milk, hardwood, or quartz. These items will reward you with 45 friendship points each. Be careful not to give her items that she dislikes, such as Wild Horseradish or Holly, as this will decrease your friendship with her.
Robin often posts quests on the community bulletin board or the Help Wanted board outside Pierre’s store, where she asks for materials such as stone or wood. Completing these quests will earn you valuable friendship points with her.
At seven Friendship hearts, you will get Robin’s letter in the mail. It reveals the two main ingredients for Pumpkin Soup: pumpkin and milk. Once you have the recipe, you can start cooking Pumpkin Soup and even sell it for a profit.
Now that you have the recipe for Pumpkin Soup, it’s time to start cooking! That concludes our guide on how to get Pumpkin Soup in Stardew Valley. If you’re interested in more guides, take a look at How to rotate furniture and How to build a coop.
