Fresh salted casings...shelf life?

Postby cannyfradock » Sun Jan 26, 2014 12:25 pm

Hi Guys

This question has probably been asked a thousand times but just can't seem to find an answer using the search facility.

How long will fresh salted sausage casings last for?

Your answers....as always are truly appreciated.

Indefinitely.... Really.

I recently bought stock and equipment from a producer in Thailand that went out of business. I thought his casings would be junk, but shipped them anyway. Turns out they are perfect, and some of them are dated 4 years ago...

No issues at all.

As long as you keep them well salted/brined they will last basically forever. While it is always best to use them in a timely manner, I have some that are 3 years old and have no odor or other features of degradation. If you keep them well salted nothing will grow and they remain stable.
