The foodie world has been abuzz with talk about a Brooklyn-based company called Steve & Andy’s Organics who make organic, non-GMO marmalade, preserves, chutney, handcrafted gluten-free flours, salted lemon peel and candied orange peel. Intrigued with the idea of any product that uses oranges, I set out to obtain Steve & Andy’s Candied Orange Peel, which took some time and persistence because everyone wants this new product.

Totally organic with no sulfites, preservatives, artificial colors or flavors, the candied orange peel is exceptional for both what it is and what it isn’t.

Most producers working with oranges are interested in the meat of the fruit, not the peel, which is usually discarded. Not at Steve & Andy’s Organics who uses organic orange peels to create a sweet treat that can be enjoyed right out of the packet or in a sugar cookie, cake, or rice recipe.

Steve & Andy’s Organics ( is working on their website, which will be up and running soon. Until then, packets of the candied orange peel can be purchased by e-mailing Quinn at or through Dean & Deluca ( where each 2.15 ounce packet sells for $12.
