Orange Peel Drying, Starter Growing
These look dark because the skins came off blood oranges. I'm making a steeped cordial that requires thoroughly dried orange peels-another few days ought to do it.
The starter is a 3 day potato water rye starter. Normally, I bake a rye bread with it, but tomorrow I might experiment and see if it makes a good rustic-style bread with wheat and rye. I get tired of baking the same things week after week (though I know I will hear howls of protest if I don't make sourdough rye from the starter. I've never met two people so in love with rye bread).
