Overview of Sausage Maker Sheep Casings - 22-24 MM (3/4"-1") - Makes 50+ lbs
Manufacturer #:  22100
An edible casing generally used to make pork sausage links or breakfast sausage. Each hank makes between 50-60 lbs., approximately 100 yards long. Sausage Maker casings come packed in purified salt for an indefinite shelf life when refrigerated. Casings should be flushed and soaked in water before using. Salted casings have a very long shelf life when stored properly. Un-refrigerated, these salted casings quickly begin to give off a strong odor even though they are not spoiled. Put them back under refrigeration and this odor for the most part subsides.
Diameter: 3/4" to 1" when stuffed
PLEASE NOTE: These casings cannot be shipped outside the US
Refrigeration & Shelf Life
These natural casings are shipped to you in a vacuum sealed bag packed in salt brine and they do not require refrigeration until after the sealed bag is opened. After the sealed bag is opened, the casings must be refrigerated, and they can generally be stored in their salt brine in the refrigerator for up to a year. If you will not be using all of the casings at once you can remove and rinse only the length of casings you will be using and leave the unused casings in the salt brine in the resealable zipper bag for later use.
We recommend that you do not freeze the casings as they may become dry, tough, and more prone to breaking and bursting when you sausage is stuffed or cooked.
