|Urist likes quarry bushes for their gray leaves.|
|This article is about an older version of DF.|
The quarry bush is one of the six known subterranean crops, and as such it may only be grown underground. They can be planted in Spring, Summer and Autumn.
Quarry bushes may be processed at a farmer's workshop into bags of quarry bush leaves, which then must be cooked at the kitchen to be edible. You will need an empty bag to be available for this task.
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 bushes cannot be brewed into alcohol.
Quarry bush seeds are known as rock nuts. Although their material definition marks them as being edible raw, they are not edible.
Rock nuts can also be milled at a millstone or quern into rock nut paste. This paste can then be used in cooking, or pressed at a screw press into a rock nut press cake and a jug of rock nut oil.
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.
