How To Make Caviar In Stardew Valley

Here's how to make Caviar from Roe in Stardew Valley.

Caviar in Stardew Valley is an artisan good that isn’t really used in any quest. But many players prefer to get Caviar in order to use it in the spool of the Sewing machine to make the Fashion Hat. It also has a healing effect and fetches a nice selling price. In this guide, you can find out how to make Caviar in Stardew Valley.

How to Get Caviar in Stardew Valley?

You will require a Fish Pond from the Carpenter’s Shop to make Caviar in Stardew Valley. This is what you will need for that:

  • 5000g
  • 5 green algae
  • 200 stone
  • 5 seaweed


To get the green algae, you have to get to fresh water or saltwater. You can also slay green slimes for this purpose. And for seaweed, you have to look for saltwater specifically so the beach is your best bet. Also note that the fish pond will need 5×5 space so be prepared beforehand for it.

The fish in particular you have to look for is the Sturgeon which you can catch in Winter or Summer times. Head to the lake, catch the fish and put it in the fish pond you’ve made. If you’re lucky, you may catch the Sturgeon easily otherwise you will have to wait a bit.

Now that you have the pond and fish set up, you have to put the roe in the Preserve Jar. After 6000 in-game minutes, you will see that the Sturgeon roe has converted to Caviar so in real time, you have to wait for some days. Basically what happens is that when you put fish in the fish pond, they make roe which turns into aged roe when you use a Preserves Jar.

So, during the waiting period, take your time and complete your other tasks on the farm. Don’t forget to check on the pond daily to see any changes. When it is ready, you will see an exclamation mark over it. When you click on it, you will notice that the Sturgeon is requesting something. Give those things to it in the pond and wait some more. This is how you will get roe.

Once you have made it, you can sell Caviar for 500g per jar or even higher (700g) for Artisan Profession. It’s also a nice choice for a gift since it is an artisan good. If not, you can eat it yourself!
