I cleaned salt from my hog casing Monday cut up my pork butt and measured seasoning and cure. Will the casing be good until Saturday soaking in ajar of clean water keep in the refrigerator?

I always add a little vinegar to the soak water just to lower the pH a little....helps fight bad bacteria.....also softens the casing slightly, but be careful not to add more than a TBSP. per quart....

I have had casings in the fridge for 4 years using Joe’s method. They are ready to go right away & I never have any blowouts. They also grill up better, nice snap, but no chew. I do use a tsp of vinegar in the container with the casings while storing.
