Hearty Truffles are items from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. They are curative items that restore Link's health by refilling two Heart Containers. Link can cook with them to create dishes with "Hearty" effect. They can also be cooked with a Hearty Lizard and Monster Parts to create Hearty Elixirs. When cooking in a pot, each Hearty Truffle adds one extra yellow Heart Container. When cooked alone or with Big Hearty Truffle, they produce Hearty Mushroom Skewers. Link can also roast them by using fire or volcanic temperatures to create Toasted Hearty Truffles. Hearty Truffles can be purchased at the East Wind general store in Hateno Village or at the Spore Store in Korok Forest. The traveling merchants Cambo and Kanny will also sell them for 24 Rupees when it rains. Link can also purchase them from Giro at his camp in the forests near Squabble River in West Necluda on the west side of Dueling Peaks. Two Hearty Truffles grow under the Rozel's hut in Lurelin Village which Link can reach by crouching and will occasionally respawn if Link leaves the area.
According to the description of Big Hearty Truffle, if Hearty Truffles remain unpicked for long periods of time will eventually grow into Big Hearty Truffles though leaving Hearty Truffles unpicked will not cause them to turn into Big Hearty Truffles as they are found in specific locations which is either due to game mechanics or the environment plays a role in unpicked Hearty Truffles maturing into Big Hearty Truffles. The female Hylian traveler Nat loves Hearty Truffles and often drags her sister Meghyn around Hyrule to search for them, often leading to them to be attacked by Bokoblins while forging for them. Link can defeat the Bokoblins to rescue them and will be rewarded with a random item or Rupees provided neither girl is knocked out, however Link is unable to help them actually search for Hearty Truffles. Nat claims its due to her enjoying their taste though Meghyn implies Nat is simply greedy for the Rupees she can get for selling them.
