Hog Casings

Postby Paul Kribs » Thu Apr 14, 2005 7:40 am

Just a basic question..
After using part of my supply of hog casings, are the remainder best kept in the fridge or freezer. I only used what I immediately required. They are still in the salt packaging which I have expelled all air and resealed. Do they last longer if frozen and would there be any ill effects to the texture after thawing?? They are currently sitting in the fridge awaiting any replies from this post.
Thanks.

Do not freeze them. If you keep them in the salt brine, they will keep for many many months in the fridge.
