Pickling Sausage Question

Discussion in 'Canning' started by jack and coke, Mar 14, 2012.

  1. I had some extra smoked sausage that I wanted to try pickled.  Its been already jarred, and sitting in the refrigerator for a few days now.  

    My question, After pickling the sausage, I realized that I did stuff this sausage with cheddar cheese chunks.  I was just wondering if the Cheese would go funky sitting in the vinegar like that.  I didn't know pickle much sausage bc it was my first attempt.  

    Any input would be thankful,

    Very good question [​IMG]  . With it being a dairy, I'm not sure. It doesn't sound good.
  3. Hmmm don't know about pickled dairy

    I think that it will not work .i use vinegar to separate  the whey from the milk wen i do cheese .there is a big chance that the vinegar will break the cheese and will destroy the sausage

    I'd had pickled polish sausages made with high temp cheddar cheese and it did leech a bit of the cheese into the brine, but not appreciably so; I kept them in the fridge for about 6 months and they didn't break down that much, still more than lip-smackin' edible on the last piece, lol!  I'd just jarred them and didn't seal them and can them, though.

    Thanks for all the advice! I'm sure it depends on the kind of cheese it is. Keep the recipes coming!
