Slush

A greasy substance obtained by boiling or scraping the fat from empty salted meat storage barrels, or the floating fat residue after boiling the crew's meal.

In the Royal Navy it was a prerequisite of the cook who could sell it or exchange it (usually for alcohol) with other members of the crew. It could also be used for greasing parts of the running rigging of the ship and was therefore valuable to the master and bosun.
