SweetGrass is excited to announce a new product on our online store, Sakari Farms Fire Roasted Hot Sauce!
SweetGrass has worked with Sakari Farms (also known as Sakari Botanicals) for several years to provide items such as smoked salts, bath scrubs, salves, lotions, oils and much more to our customers.
The new Fire Roasted Hot Sauce is smokey, fire-roasted goodness in a bottle, thanks to jalapeños smoked over oak and applewood blended with roasted tomatillos, onion and garlic. The heat level of this sauce is rated 2/5 and is perfect for kids or those who don’t like too much spice. This sauce can be used on pretty much everything – eggs, chicken, popcorn or alone with tortilla chips!
Sakari Farms was founded in 2014 by Spring Alaska Olson, under the Department of Agriculture’s USDA Intertribal Agricultural Council. Olson is an enrolled member and shareholder of the Chugach Alaska Native Corporation and Valdez Native Tribe.
The word “Sakari” means “sweet” in the traditional Inupiaq language. Olson uses traditional practices she learned from her family to grow local plants, flowers and herbs and create oils, salves, teas, and more.
Olson grew up in Valdez, Alaska, and is committed to making sure her products honor her Tribe’s values and traditions. She grows dozens of different plants, including lavender, calendula, roses, elderberries, lomatium, comfrey, Yarrow, and more, and saves the seeds and uses the whole plant to create foods and healing materials.
The farm is located in Tumalo, Oregon, and all of the plants are produced with organic or native seed and are either hand-collected or foraged at an on-site nursery.
