Can You Make Vinegar in Stardew Valley?

No, there is no way to make Vinegar in Stardew Valley. There aren’t many items in this game that you can’t craft or make, but Vinegar is one of them.

Vinegar is actually the only cooking ingredient in Stardew Valley that you can’t make as an artisan good, as you would with most of the other ingredients.

How to Get Vinegar in Stardew Valley

The only way you can get Vinegar in Stardew Valley is to buy it at Pierre’s General Store for 200 g. There is no other way you can obtain this cooking ingredient in the game.

JojaMart doesn’t sell Vinegar, which kinda makes it not worth the Membership.

Even if you complete their Community Developments and get cheaper prices with them, you will still have to visit Pierre’s Store to get Vinegar.

Also, if you buy it, you should never sell it, as you would only get 100 g back. It would be better to keep it until you might want to cook one of the recipes from below in the future.

Recipes That Need Vinegar

Here is a list of all the cooking recipes that need Vinegar in Stardew Valley:

  • Coleslaw – Red Cabbage, Vinegar, and Mayonnaise (Recipe Source: TV, 14 Spring, Year 1)
  • Parsnip Soup – Parsnip, Milk, and Vinegar (Recipe Source: 3 hearts with Caroline)
  • Radish Salad – Oil, Vinegar, and Radish (Recipe Source: TV, 21 Spring, Year 1)
  • Salad – Leek, Dandelion, and Vinegar (Recipe Source: 3 hearts with Emily)

None of these dishes give you any buffs, so they are relatively good as healing and energy-replenishing food items if you ever want to go explore the Skull Cavern or Volcano Dungeon for a longer time.

The Coleslaw and the Radish Salad are actually incredibly good healing dishes, as they both recover around 90 HP and 200 Energy.

Radishes are extremely easy and fast to grow, and you can get both Oil and Vinegar from Pierre’s.

That’s everything you need to know about how to make Vinegar in Stardew Valley!
