Unfortunately, you don’t just start the game knowing how to make this food item. You will need to obtain the recipe for Cranberry Relish first.

  • Antoine in Whitespring Resort
  • Molly in The Crater
  • The Scavenger Trader whenever they make an appearance in your camp

None of the merchants are guaranteed to have the item in their inventory and you may need to wait a few days or server hop to find them selling it. Once you have the recipe, you will need the following items to craft Cranberry Relish:
