Our Clear Fibrous Casings 88mm are ideal for making cooked salami or other sausages that are cooked medium in oven or smoker with indirect heat. Casing are not intended for dry cured salami.
The casings runs lengthwise which makes them strong so they can be stuffed tighter without breaking. No smoking is needed as the mahogany color simulates the color of smoke. These casings are plant based and have a long shelf live.
Our fibrous casings are available in clear, mahogany, red and protein lined. Fibrous casings are non-edible and need to be peeled before eating.
