To cook up many of the recipes Johannes offers, you’ll need plenty of rice, potatoes and more in Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night. While you can buy these ingredients or even find them, it’s often much better to grow rice and crops instead. This mechanic is easily overlooked as it requires you to head backwards from the safe house, towards the galleon rather than into the castle. If you’ve not seen this feature yet, here’s how to grow rice and crops in Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night.
Grow rice and crops in Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night
To grow rice and other crops like potatoes in Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, all you need is a seed for the relevant plant. You can buy seeds, find them or receive them as rewards for quests, so you’ll likely have picked up a few while exploring. To use them, you need to head left out from the safe house in which Johannes and Dominique are found. Leaving the house in this direction you’ll meet a farmer named Harry.
Speak to Harry and you’ll be able to give him any seeds for crops that you’ve collected. Harry will take them to plant crops. Return to him later (or if you’re in a real hurry, just warp back and forth between a few points then return) and he’ll give you a portion of the harvest he’s collected. This is the best way to earn a lot of rice, potatoes and other food parts. Basically, you want to be giving a seed to Harry every time you return to visit Johannes or Dominique to maximize your output.
