How do I keep mahogany casings from sticking to my summer sausage?

Sometimes when I make summer sausage, the fibrous casing is hard to peel off. Any ideas how to stop this?


Have you been soaking your mahogany casings in water for 10-15 minutes before you stuff your product into them? If so, then try adding some milk to the water -- just enough to color the water a little. The lactate in the milk will make the casing slippery and help during the removal process.

Thanks Scott,
