The casings are packed in purified salt and have an indefinite shelf life when stored in the refrigerator.

Beef casings tend to be more dense and unpleasant to chew. They are typically pealed after cooking and for that reason are considered non-edible. Casings should be flushed inside and out with cold water, rinsed thoroughly and soaked in water overnight.

    Q Can I use these for ring bologna and can I smoke these? answer now

    Hi Bill,

    Yes you can! Natural casings are great for smoking because they're very permeable, so the bologna will come out having a nice smoked flavor. These are a thicker part of the intestine than small hog or sheep casings, so you have to peel these off before eating them because our stomach cannot digest such a thick casing. If you have any other questions you can email us at [email protected]

    Q Why are beef rounds not edible? answer now

    They are Edible...technically, but they are very tough and chewy, and also don't digest as well as the thinner-walled natural casings from Hog/Sheep. Their purpose is more utility, eating them is not typical. They CAN be softened by soaking the Rounds (same with Middles/Bungs) with 1-2 teaspoon white vinegar per 4 oz water when soaking. The smell dissipates and the acidity tenderizes the casings. Hope this helps!
