    Preparing Natural Casings 

    1. Remove the approximate amount you will need.
    2. Place casings in a clean food-safe bowl.
    3. Rinse casings of salt under cool running water.
    4. Flush the insides of casings to assist in smooth casing application.
    5. For small casings (<42mm): place bowl in cool water to soak for about 2 hours in the refrigerator prior to use.
    6. For larger casings (>42mm): place the bowl of the beef bung, middles, and/or rounds in the refrigerator to soak overnight prior to use.
    7. Optional for smell control – add ½ tsp baking soda per cup of water.
    8. Optional for tenderizing – squeeze a lemon or add a tablespoon of white vinegar to soaking water to refresh casings.

    The natural casings should be kept refrigerated until ready for use. Un-refrigerated, these salted casings may give off a strong odor. This is Normal. Simply put the casings back into the refrigerator and the odor will subside. Natural casings should never be frozen. It affects their integrity after thawing and will cause more blowouts.

      Good quality casings. Casings were tied to a plastic ring to help separate the individual casings. Have used these before and never had a problem.

      These were a little cleaner than the 29-32 so a little better rating.

      I reordered the casing that I use every year, since the company “Sausage maker has the best casing and other items items I use, I would recommend the Sausage maker to all my friends.

      I was about to order from a competitor because they were offering free shipping and 15% off. When I went to check out, the discounts went away. When I contacted the company, I was told the discounts ended just minutes before and basically told tuff luck bum. I went back to the sausagemaker and I noticed they were showing similar discounts I hadn’t noticed before, but that they had just expired. I placed an order and the sausagemaker honored the discounts. I will never shop for sausage making supplies anywhere else again. This is only my second order, but I will be making many more. Thanks sausagemaker. A very happy customer.

      When I received the 35 x 38 mm hog casing the package had a pin size leak in it. Put them in a baggy. Is that a salt water solution?

      I’ve tried other brands and they always have short pieces. The casings at sausage maker are clean, good length and easy to thread on to the horn. They are my go to place for supplies. Quick shipping and great service.

      Clean and easy to work with . On the grill, they make a great sausage

    50. S. Torres (verified owner)

      By far the best and easiest natural casings to use for link sausage making. Perfect diameter! I do miss the ring that used to come in the packaging, it made for easier detangling during the prep and rinse phase.

    51. Anonymous (verified owner)

      These are the best casings I have ever used in 40 years of sausage making. Very strong and durable.
