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 the bowl in cool water to soak for about 2 hours in the refrigerator before use.
  6. For larger casings (>42mm): place a bowl of the beef bung, middles, and rounds in the refrigerator to soak overnight before 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.
