ZINGI

image250

This is the original Kardi Vera sauce. Zingi is the first part of the Greek word for Ginger "Zingiber." A simple list of ingredients featuring the best foods for your heart and body. Always organic, no concentrates or extracts. Just Chile Peppers, Turmeric, Ginger, Shallots, Red wine and Apple Cider Vinegar with a great blend of herbs and spices mixed to a very smooth pour-able consistency. Once you start using it you'll never want to go without. Perfect for stir fry and wings, or add it to everything from sandwiches to salads.

MOXIE

image251

Moxie is an informal American word meaning "force of character or determination." More of a condiment than a sauce. It's a little thicker, slightly sweet and somewhat sassy take on our Zingi sauce. This irresistible harissa-style sauce is made from organic Tomatoes, Sweet Onions, Chile Peppers and of course Ginger and Turmeric. Raw natural Honey adds sweetness and micro-nutrients.  Apple cider, Lemon juice, Garlic and some great  spices round out this aromatic sauce. A  'can-do' condiment, it's a great addition to salsa or dips, burgers, eggs or just about anything else.


SUSTAINABILITY:

 All our products are produced in small batches sourcing as many local farmers as possible. Because we are in the Pacific Northwest we have access to many small farms involved in sustainable agriculture, from no till soil management to organic permaculture. Our packaging is specifically not plastic. We use glass containers, metal lids and paper labels so all of it can be recycled. 

ZINGI GARLIC-LIME

image252

If it's possible to be Zingi-er, this is! 

All the goodness of Zingi with the added kick of Garlic and Lime. Like Zingi, still no oils, dairy or gluten, totally vegan. It's a fantastic addition to almost any food, especially those with flavors from Latin America. Great in Chili and  other soups, use on fish tacos, as a tangy addition to  standard salsa, pulled pork, or chicken. Once you start using it, the options become endless. Enjoy!





Note: We just started the Certified Organic process, expect to see it on the label later this year.
