Is it editable? I think my dwarves have cooked it, but can it be eaten raw? Noctis 14:04, 18 November 2007 (EST)

I don't think it's edible raw. I've seen dwarves cook it all the time, but never just chow down on it. Not that I can blame them; it'd be like eating raw Crisco. --Brent Not Broken 17:38, 18 November 2007 (EST)
Obviously, your dwarves aren't Southern. I had a rather sizable stockpile of fat that built up, and when I finally noticed it, I wound up with six or seven different types of tallow. Which my cooks promptly made into biscuits consisting of nothing but tallow. Mmmm...just like my great aunt used to make. --RedKing 17:26, 10 January 2009 (EST)


Can tallow rot? how fast? --Koltom 19:19, 23 February 2008 (EST)


Does tallow gain any value in being rendered from fat? That is, when I butcher a cat, I expect to get a cookable stack of 5 tallow worth 5 (stack size) * 1 (value of fat) * 1 (cat modvalue) = 5. --Jurph 16:59, 16 January 2009 (EST)


What kind of stockpile does tallow go into? -Heartofgoldfish 21:45, 7 April 2009 (UTC)

Food, I think. Definitely food.--Zchris13 21:58, 7 April 2009 (UTC)
