Soy sauce, an essential condiment in many recipes, can be a bit tricky to get in Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Olive Town. But with the right approach, you can produce this versatile ingredient in no time. This guide will walk you through the process step-by-step.
A Brief Overview
In Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Olive Town, you'll need to get a Condiment Maker to produce soy sauce. This machine is a reward for completing a certain cooking request in the game, specifically the Mixed Salad, or made from the Crafting Menu.
Making Mixed Salad and Unlocking the Condiment Maker

Producing Soy Sauce

Keep in mind that soy sauce is not only an ingredient for the Mixed Salad but also for other dishes like the Hot & Sour Soup and Kitsune Udon.
