Do hog casings go bad? I have some that are a year old and not sure if they go bad. Also whats the best way to store them? These were just in a kitchen cabinet, should they be stored cold?
SS, If they were never opened and they are vac sealed they should be fine. Is it a small home use pack?? There maybe a use by date on the pack ?? I don't believe the casing are refrigerated at the warehouse, I receive mine in the mail and put in the fridge out of habit even when unopened.They can throw off a bit of an odor when left out but it goes away when refrigerated.
Below is a great thread from boykjo....
