You can get this achievement very early. Like, very, very early. Your crafting command should be on your R-Trigger palette by default. At least it is for a mage. As soon as you get Elfroot and a Deep Mushroom, you can craft Mabari Crunch.

There's really not much more I can add that would be helpful, I just wanted to let you all know you can get this achievement very early and what items to look for to get it.

EDIT #1: Apparently my solution here only works for a Mage (tho you can likely get it with Morrigan once you aquire her to your party). So here's a method for a d0rf (dwarf) posted by BiG PaPa ChIlL in the comments section:

"Didn't find this too helpful seeing this is if you are a mage only. I was a dwarf and couldn't just do this.

"Anyways for those looking for more help if you're a dwarf hold LT for the menu and got to potions. From there go to herbalism and anything that is in color you should be able to make using things you have found. If you make it past the first 2 quests you should easily have the items to make something"

Thanks for the info and if anyone else is having issues with either of these, please post a solution on how you got this achievement. Alternatively, you can just post in the comments of this solution and I will gladly update it with full credit given to you. Thanks again!

EDIT #2: Here's a tip from Skadi And Omega. In fact, this is what I'd actually recommend doing because it allows you to use something more useful for your main character. Here's Skadi And Omega's advice:

"You can of course just use LB/RB to select Morrigan and use Herbalism (if you don't have it), my Elf didn't. Just a tip for anyone not finding the option on their main character, achievement still pops if you use other party members."

Thanks for pointing that out, Skadi And Omega. I meant to come back and update this a while ago but completely forgot. I wrote the solution when the game was new and didn't notice this until a little later in the game.
