Storing natural casings

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hi from balmy northeast Iowa. 

Weird to be almost 50 degrees in Dec!

I've had a hank of natural hog casings stored in the fridge, salted, for 2 years. Only use 20 to 30 feet of them a year. 

Same situation for a hank of sheep casings for 1 year. How long can I store them this way?

 

Thanks, Rod

General recommendation is a year, 2 years at most.  After 2 years I would doubt their worthiness, especially the lamb casings as they decompose faster.  Best thing to do is to make more delicious sausages!

Thanks Pops, think I'll get some new ones, smaller package.
