|Urist likes quarry bushes for their gray leaves.|
|This article is about an older version of DF.|
Processing quarry bushes at a farmer's workshop requires one bag, and will produce 5 quarry bush leaves (and one rock nut) for every plant in a given stack of quarry bushes. Quarry bush leaves will be removed from their bag if taken for cooking while still in a farmer's workshop.
Cooking quarry bush leaves can result in very large stacks of Prepared Food, thus saving space and barrels. In a fortress that relies on selling large expensive stacks of Prepared Food, quarry bush leaves are great filler: a lavish meal made from whip wine and dwarven cheese with two stacks of quarry bush leaves for filler is worth almost ten times more than an easy meal made from wine and cheese alone.
Quarry bush seeds are known as rock nuts. Although their material definition marks them as being edible raw, they are not edible.
Both the rock nut paste and rock nut press cake are cookable and considered a single food category, referred to as "rock nut" in the cooking permissions screen (not to be confused with "rock nuts", the entry for the seeds), the Stocks screen compacted view, and Prepared meal descriptions.
The rock nut oil can be cooked or used in place of tallow to make soap.
Thanks to the increased value of rock nut oil as a by product of rock nut processing, the highest potential value of foods gleaned from one quarry bush plant is 31 (five leaves at a value of 5 each, plus oil and a press cake), the highest for a subterranean crop.
