Storing Sausage Casings

Eugene from Lynco, WVA asked:

I have some leftover casings – how I do I store them now that I’ve opened the bag?

I hope the sausage came out well!

When I have extra casing I will store them 3 ways. First have you rinsed all the casings?

If you have and you will be making sausage again in the next few weeks, simply repackage them in salt, vacuum seal them and place them in the refrigerator until you're ready to make the next batch.

You can also place them in a freezer container, mix up a salt water solution and freeze them in the salt water.

If you haven't rinsed all the casings and they are still dried and packed in salt, you can simply reseal the package and store them in the refrigerator until your next use.

If you will be storing them for over a year you may want to freeze them.

Hope your sausage turned out great!
