What's your culinary secret weapon?

You know, that thing you always keep around in your kitchen that your friends and family either never buy or think is totally weird?

Mine is buttermilk. I use it in everything from bread to curry to cake, and it makes everything so smooth and tasty! And it stays good for a really long time (I mean, what's it going to do, curdle more?). I wonder why more people don't keep it around.
