Tallew is a relatively labor-intensive crop to grow, as it cannot survive flooding from highstorms. This makes it profitable to sell, which led Turinad Sebarial to set up tallew fields near the warcamps on the Shattered Plains. The Akanny region of the Sadeas princedom in Alethkar has rolling hills that are ideal for growing lavis and tallew, and it produces a large amount of both grains.
Once harvested, tallew can be stored for months to provide sustenance during the winter. It can be transported in bags and used as rations on long journeys. Tallew's long shelf life allowed the Kholinar Wall Guard to eat it during the Siege of Kholinar.
The grain often has other ingredients such as spices added to it. Lighteyes sometimes eat boiled tallew mixed with a spicy gravy spread on slices of stagm. Fruited tallew rice with flatbread is a common meal for children in Alethkar. Tallew is often used as an ingredient in stew. Tvlakv served his slaves unspiced, overcooked tallew with a mushy texture and Kaladin found it revolting, later experiencing flashbacks to how bad it tasted.
