Natural Beef Rounds 38-40mm are a natural sausage casing. Ideal for fresh, cooked or smoked sausage such as Ring Bologna, Kiszka (Polish Blood Sausage), Blood Sausage, Sucuk and Hurka. These casings are non-edible.

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.

    It’s a very great clean product, I order it for myself and my family always !
    the only take is the shipping cost I pay every time, I’m a returning customer, and I get surprised I pay for shipping despite the repetition and big amount of my order .

    The turn around for the order was too long–it took 7 days for the order to ship. Shipping is way to expensive. USPS flat rate boxes are 1/2 the price!
    The product ordered is fantastic, it just takes too long and is too expensive to get it. 5 stars for the product, 2 stars for service.
