    I was sick reading a thread about rockey mountain oysters.
    now im in deep trouble with my sausage making. i also am turned off about stuffing animal intestines

    i just read the following ???????????????????????

    A collagen sausage casing having improved clarity and weeping properties and a method of making the casing is disclosed. The casing contains from 50 to 80% by weight of bovine collagen and from 20 to 50% by weight of an acidified brine extracted pork skin.

    I don't have to be stuffed in anything to still be sausage...........I guess a lot of fatties and patties are in your future. [​IMG]

    I'd say stuff the meat in peppers, but I can still hear you whining about that pepper I gave you. LOL [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    You know Scotty, I don't think I would put too much thinking into food. If you do you're in for a long road to starvation or on your way to becoming a vegetarian. Not that I'm up for a big plate of head cheese.. but don't over think your food.

    I have to ask. What did you think sausage casings were made from?

    Scotty, you did realize when you got into stuffing sausage what they were being stuffed into... right? There are artificial casings you can use... or not.

    I don't know alot about sausage making yet, but I plan to learn everything I can about it and start making my own. Yeah, I have to admit, at first there was something negative about using that long tube that had pig poop in it, then stuff the donor's own ground-up flesh into it and call it food.

    I got over it, I have eaten alot of great sausage in my life and never got sick from it, nor did I have the taste of poop on my breath afterward... [​IMG][​IMG]

    It's all good dude...

    I still remember an early conversation with my step-dad about his early days with sausage casings. He had the job of boiling and scraping the 'natural' casings. He said his dad would get hot as fire when he would scrape through them or tear em. Just imagine this conversation at the dinner table and then he spouts off... Those things aren't made of cast iron ya know.

    I still say sausage is good.. who cares what it's in.

    It could all be worse, we could be discussing haggis.

    For my nickel's worth, I'd a whole bunch eat the natural casings. At least you know where they came from and how they were made.[​IMG][​IMG]

    I think the problem started out as what was made in them first... [​IMG][​IMG]

    I prefer natural, man made taste like a combination of saran wrap and paper. I like making my own sausage cause I know what is in there. Store bought polish, brats, weiners, summer sausage, ring who knows what got thrown in there......
