  • Giardiniera is THE MIGHTY CONDIMENT





    Add moxie to:
    Burgers, sandwiches, hummus, avocado, salads, scrambles, chips, crackers, pizza, & MORE!




    Carrots, Celery,
    Serrano & Jalape
    ño Peppers,
    Roasted Red Bell Peppers,
    Pickled Pearl Onions
    Spanish Olives


    We begin with USA-grown Kosher

    sweet peppers roasted to perfection.

    Then add a mix of fresh and brined vegetables.

    We go to great lengths to bring you the best and freshest GMO-free condiments, like HERO Giardiniera. In fact, we kick-started the very first commercially available Non-GMO "cocktail onion" in the USA, because we couldn't find a GMO-free onion to source otherwise.

    Our roasted red bell peppers come from Dunbars, a family-owned processor of bell peppers in the Carolinas, and we use only Lindsay Spanish Olives, which are diced and hand-chopped before tossing with our fresh produce.

    Thanks to Seattle-based Northwest Fresh Cuts
    , which delivers the freshest produce to us as per our specifications, our produce is sourced from family farms in California.


    For our refrigerated version of HERO, available in bulk for commercial use, we use Bella Vina Expeller Pressed GMO-free Canola Oil because, in our many months of testing, this performed the best in foodservice applications. For our pantry (shelf-stable) retail version, we use San Giuliano Italian Grapeseed Oil as this by-product of the winemaking industry is growing in preference by North American consumers and is derived from a sustainable farming source we want to support.


    We use white wine vinegar with no added sulfites, and when it's all married with a touch of salt, it brings out a crunchy, savory, briny umami taste experience.


    HERO is hand-packed into 2/4 lb. bag-in-box for foodservice (refrigerated), and 12 oz glass jars (shelf-stable) for retail.

    HERO is GMO-free as tested by IEH Laboratories, an approved lab of the Non-GMO Verification Project.

    We are committed to bringing you the best-tasting condiments while positively impacting society.


    Thank You, City of Seattle, and states like Connecticut that have mandatory recycling programs!


  • Seattle Made

    Giardiniera (pronounced Jar-din-air) began in Italy, about two centuries ago, as a mélange of brined produce harvested from local farms. It was created as a celebration of vegetable-growers' bounty.
    Our style of giardiniera is inspired by Chicago's take, dicing up the veggies, and adding hot peppers.
    HERO The Mighty Condiment brings moxie to your food.
