Persimmon
Brazil nuts
Buttermilk
Different vanillas
Milk chocolate with cinnamon

I guess it depends on my mood.

I'm with you on the crushed (black)pepper. It may be passe at this point, but I think it goes so well with many fruits.

Also, I'm really into salt lately. Today I bought something called Roasted Oksang MIneral salt. Cheap 3 bucks in an Oriental market. Really unique, but I'm not sure how it would go with sweet stuff.

I think chocolate will always be a favourite. What is new is the way it's now being sold. Chocolate is now label by country of origin and percentage of cocoa it contains. Even cocoa powder is now sold just like coffee, according to the type of beans used and where they were grown.

Momoreg is right salt is gaining in popularity. Think fleur de sel, sel fin etc. All things that were unknown to most until a few years ago.

Quince, Which is in the apple/pear family is wonderful made into preserves..Quince butter
It is almost always cooked...When I cook quince it takes on a really nice pink color and gets very fragrent.try coring a quince and filling with butter and brown sugar and simply roasted with a little good vanilla ice cream.and you'll be a happy camper

mbrown, Where'd you get the black salt? That sounds pretty unusual. Let us know what you use it for.
