    Question. Store bought Italian sausage links. What casing is used? They don't look like natural and are extremely clear.

    If they are fresh uncooked sausage there probably hog casings, that's what most of the sausage makers use.

    i agree with stayhot,most stores use hog casing, if they are of good quality they will almost look clear.

    ok so back at the supermarket tonight and I took an extra close look and I could see the tell tail signs of hog casings.  But these casings are so much clearer and thinner looking than any hog casings I have bought.  Can someone recommend a supplier with high quality hog casings?
