What Are Some Very Unusual But Effective Cooking Ingredients?

TurboKid
For the cooks out there, are there any seemingly bizarre yet very effective cooking ingredients that you use in your cooking? I find those particularly interesting to learn about and try since tend to be surprisingly effective and don't make the dish taste weird like I would have thought.

The type of examples I have in mind include things like coffee or dark chocolate in a chili con carne to give it a very earthy flavor, using mayo instead of milk or cream to create extremely smooth and velvety scrambled eggs, marinating meats in carbonated beverages to tenderize them including sodas like Sprite, and simmering chicken in Coca-Cola.
