"Not now thanks, I'm pickling some slugs."
Dishevelled Wizard mumbling in their sleep[src]

Pickled slugs are presumably and most likely an ingredient used in potion-making. It was mentioned by a wizard sleeping on the Knight Bus in 1993, who had been talking in his sleep.[1] It could be a wizarding hobby, such as making preserves.
