Natural Sheep Casings
Like Hog, Sheep casings are immensely popular natural casings for sausage makers, novice and pro alike. They are strong, yet extremely tender. The best part about sheep casings is they are smaller. This can be the one drawback for newbies as they get used to the size. When using sheep casings, you’re most likely going to be making snack sticks and breakfast sausage, or sausages with small diameters.
When using fresh, natural sheep casings, there are a few steps to follow:
Rinse and soak casings for at least 20 minutes to an hour prior to use.
Please, flush out casings with water – ensuring they are clean and safe for use.
