How Animal Crossing New Horizons Thanksgiving and Black Friday Work 2

Handling Thanksgiving in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

The Animal Crossing: New Horizons Turkey Day Thanksgiving event involves helping Franklin. He’s a seasonal NPC that only shows up for the event. The turkey is in town making food for the holiday. You assist by offering additional ingredients. By giving the requested ones, in addition to a secret one, you can get DIY recipes for Turkey Day furniture.

Due to the way things work, you can get ingredients in multiple ways. Your neighbors will trade you items Franklin wants for fish. If you’ve been farming, now that Leif sells multiple crops, https://www.siliconera.com/how-farming-works-in-animal-crossing-new-horizons-crops/ you might have some items too.

Manila Clams are needed for Clam Chowder. You can find these buried on beaches. Scallops can be used in that too. That shows up when you dive in the ocean.

Fish Meuniere requires the respectable Sea Bass. You can find it in the ocean. (It’ll be a big shadow.) You also need a dab too, which you get from the ocean. The secret ingredient there is a Barred Knifejaw, which is a medium-sized ocean fish.

Gratin will need one potato, one round mushroom, and a Dungeness Crab as the secret ingredient. The mushrooms can be found by trees. You grow potatoes. Dungeness Crabs can be found when diving.

To make Pumpkin Pie, you need pumpkins. There are four different colors possible, and including one of each covers the main and secret ingredients.

Turn items in, help Franklin make food, and get Turkey Day Thanksgiving Animal Crossing furniture in return!
