Description
 

PLEASE NOTE: Natural casings cannot be shipped outside the US

Traditionally used to make blood sausage and sopressata. By its very nature they have a strong odor and should be rinsed well before using. When refrigerated, packed liberally in purified salt, they have an indefinite shelf life. 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. Stuffing capacity per hank: Approximately 85 lbs.

Diameter:
Approximately 2 1/4" (55-60mm) when stuffed

Medium Size

great customer service October 10, 2017
Reviewer: Cliff H. from Safety Harbor, FL United States  
The hog middles were exactly the right size in diameter for my filetto (mini-lonza).  There were a few holes in the sides of the first two middles that I took from the container which prevented me from just using one middle for two filettos.  I called customer service to ask if this was common, and two days later they had sent me a complimentary replacement order of beef middles to try!  Now I have to go to the butcher and buy more pork tenderloins!!

Great way to go over and above with the customer service - thanks!!

55-60mm (2 1/8"-2 3/8") Natural Hog Middles May 28, 2017
Reviewer: Timothy Popp from Saint Charles, MO United States  
I have been using these for several years.  They are of excellent quality and I cannot find locally.  Great for Italian dried sausage. After curing/ageing/shrinkage you get about a 3" diameter finished product.

Natural Casings November 12, 2016
Reviewer: Adelina Donato from huntingdon Valley, PA United States  
We use the hog middles for "originality" of Soppessati.  Although they are hard to handle because of their delicateness, it's worth it.  Very happy with product and using it for years.
