Natural Casings

  1. JUst curious how natural casings work for a summer sausage or snack sticks??  I'm guessing that all the nitrates in the mix preserves and sanitizes the casings???

    Previously I only had used Collagen casings, however, there are no suppliers near me and I need some tomorrow.

    Let me know your thoughts

    THanks

    Hey Dave...... Most summer sausage is made with 2 1/2 inch non edible cologen You can use fresh natural casings for summer sausage and snack sticks but you will need to use beef middles for SS and sheeps for snack sticks...  the cost will be way more for the naturals
