How to farm Hearty Truffles in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom (TOTK)

Good for the heart.

Hearty Truffle is an essential ingredient when cooking dishes in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom because, when added to a meal, it gives Link temporary hearts. It's my go-to when creating food to use before boss fights. Here's how and where to farm Hearty Truffles in Tears of the Kingdom.

Hearty Truffles, and their better counterpart Big Hearty Truffles, are found in caves. Naturally, you'll explore many as you roam around Hyrule (especially if you prefer to spend hours running around the map doing random stuff as I do), so you may have already picked a few up.

Unlike Tabantha Wheat in TotK, where you can force its respawn, you cannot regenerate Hearty Truffles on the fly. Instead, you either need to wait for them to randomly appear again, or sleep in a bed until the next Blood Moon.
