How to process ingredients in Genshin Impact

Want to learn how to process ingredients in Genshin Impact? The cooking system in this game is in-depth enough to make it useful and exciting. Each recipe you cook can heal your party members or provide useful stats like increases to ATK and STAM. Luckily, cooking is straightforward, and you can do it in any of the two major cities: Mondstadt or Liyue Harbor. You can also find many campfires and cooking stations out in the world to use to process ingredients.

Processing ingredients comes in handy because some of the recipes require these items. High-level recipes generally require things you cannot find in the world and can only craft through this processing method. Here’s everything you need to know about how to process ingredients in Genshin Impact.

For example, if you want to make some four-star Jade Parcels, you need Lotus Head, Jueyun Chili, Cabbage, and Ham. The last ingredient, ham, can be processed, and you cannot find it abundantly in the world from a plant or animal. Therefore, you will need to craft some Ham if you plan to make Jade Parcels.
