The good news is that the location of each one is specified in the objectives, but exploring the entire area can take some time. To save you the trouble, we’ll pinpoint the location of each ingredient.
However, before we dive any further, it is worth noting that each ingredient is indicated by a colorful heart symbol.
So, when looking for these, keep an eye out for hearts to aid in your search for the ingredients.
Nordic Gourd location
The Nordic Gourd is by far the most accessible ingredient. It’s in Midgard, right under your nose. All you have to do is turn around from the campfire and take a short walk.
Eventually, you’ll catch sight of a Yellow Heart on the ice. This is your cue that the ingredient is nearby. Head over to the symbol to find the first ingredient in the form of a Nordic Gourd.
The next ingredient is the Prongfruit and it will have you travel all the way to Svartalfheim. When you reach the area, complete the Forge and head over to the train tracks.
Next up, you’re required to get to the Nornir Chest which is down the hill towards the right. Once there, you’ll find a Green Heart marking.
Heads up, the ingredient is close! In this case, the Prongfruit lies on the left side of the chest.
Bantam Melon location
The next ingredient on the list is Bantam Melon found in the realm of Vanaheim at the Sinkhole. To get to the sinkhole, you must first gain access to the Crater.
It can be done by completing the favor Scent of Survival. Now with the Crater unlocked, complete the Return of River to gain access to the Sinkhole.
In the Sinkhole, head left and open the gate using the chain found on the right side. Get through the gate and head straight. A Yellow Heart marking can be found to the left.
Jump across the gap to reach the other side. In front of the heart symbol lies the Bantam Melon.
