Preparing Natural Casings 

  1. Remove 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 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 refrigerator prior to use.
  6. For larger casings (>42mm): place bowl of beef bung, middles and/or rounds in refrigerator to soak overnight prior to use.
  7. Optional for smell control – add 1/2 tsp baking soda per cup of water.
  8. Optional for tenderizing – squeeze a lemon or a 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.

    Small quanitities of casings for the periodic home sausage maker can be hard to find locally as many butchers don’t want to mess with small quantities or even take from their stocks. This Home Pak fits the bill since I only make about 20 lbs. of Swedish sausage per year.

  9. Joe (verified owner)

    Fantastic product, easy to use. The various lengths of the casing made for easy control of the sausage making.

    Casing were good. Did have a couple “blow outs” but I don’t believe it was due to bad casing. Stuck on tube.
    Priced right.

    As a home sausage maker that likes to make small batches, the “Home Pak” was a great amount of odds and ends casings at a great price. The “Home Pak” was a wonderful idea and I am glad you offer it to us “small time” people.

  20. Bill Brach (verified owner)

    Thanks for the usual great service. I have been making bratwurst and landjaeger for 4-5 years now and always get my casings from The Sausage Maker. I just snuck in one last batch of landjaeger before the hot weather cam and used the last of my castings. I bought 8 packages, enough for 200# of product, and they shipped to my door for free. They even arrived next day. The home packs are a great value, and keep indefinitely! Keep up the good work Sausage Maker!

    We have been using the Home Pak Natural Hog Casings for a while now and have been very happy with the product. Previously, they have yielded a much better finished product than casings I used to use from the outdoor product retailers. We use them mostly for fresh brats.

  36. Stephen Ruhmel (verified owner)

    The sausage casings are great, but my special instructions were ignored. I requested the face of a pig be drawn on my package but, alas, no friendly swine was to be found.
