    Had a picnic shoulder so I decided to do some experimenting. Grinded this up.

    First batch was mixed with sage, crushed juniper berries and lemon zest, salt and pepper to taste.

    I wanted to use sheep cases and attempted but got frustrated, I soaked them for a couple of days while changing the water but they were still too small for my smallest horn and ripped easily. I decided to try collegen for the first time here.

    Stuffing. I twisted twice to link them, I know collegen is difficult to link, I figured I could freeze them in place.

    Placed on a tray to freeze the links, will vacuum seal with 4 links per pack. This batch above was mixed with sage, cinnamon and sugar, red chili flakes, salt and pepper to taste for a breakfast style. Thanks for looking!

    I tried the sheep casing and got very frustrated, very quickly. I would prefer to use them but I could not get them started on the horn and when I did they ripped right into.

    Looks good. As far as sheep casings, soak them in water for a few days changing the water everyday. Makes thet super soft. Bit you need to have a small enough tube for them.

    Another option is to put them thru the stuffer with no casing . Cut them to length and freeze on a sheet tray . Then bag or vac seal .
