Read 20 Reviews Write a Review


SKU: 17-1021 Categories: ,


PLEASE NOTE: Natural casings cannot be shipped outside the US

Large Diameter Casings. Not Edible. Traditionally used to make Liver Sausage, Ring Bologna, and Braunshweiger type sausage recipes. 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. Non-edible. Hog Middles are not completely de-fatted, it is normal for them to contain fat along the interior lining.

  • Packed 5 pieces (7 feet each) per pack
  • Approximately 2 1/4″ (55-60mm) when stuffed

    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.

    I use these casings to make traditional spicy sopressata the same as my great grandfather from Sicily did.

    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.

    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!!

    On web site was stated that a bucket contains 5 pcs of 7 ft long middles. Received 3 pcs of 7 ft and two pcs of 3 ft only.
    Feel that I’m cheated with this order
