Help - where to buy candied orange/grapefruit peel?

  • 8

I don't have time to make my own, and I need candied orange or grapefruit peel for a cake. Whole Foods does not carry it, which surprises me. Where else can I go in the District?

  1. This probably doesn't help, but I've seen candied ginger at Hudson Trail Outfitters, an outdoor store. They have a location in Tenleytown.

    1. Nothing comes to mind, but if I needed some, I would call around at gourmet candy stores.

        Also - it's worth giving Dean & Deluca a call.

      2. You can actually buy it online from Amazon (weird, I know!)

        1. Try La Cuisine in Alexandria. 703-836-4435

          If they don't have it (I would be surprised!), they will know who does.
