Sausages Seasonings and Casing Items…
You’re going to need some seasoning and casing to make your home made sausage and I’ve listed a few choices that you can try out from Amazon.
AC Legg Sausage Seasoning have a great very affordable range and here are just a few…
- A.C. Legg INC #10 Pork Sausage Seasoning (Amazon Best Seller)
A.C. Legg Fresh Cajun Style Sausage Seasoning (5 Star rating)
- A.C. Legg INC Maple Flavored Breakfast Sausage Seasoning with DeWied Home pack Sheep Casings NO MSG
One 10 oz. Bag of AC Leggs Old Plantation Maple Flavored Breakfast Sausage Seasoning Blend #8 Seasons 25 pounds of meat.
Mix bag with 25-lbs. of meat. You can use 25 lbs. of lean pork (boneless pork shoulder butts will work if you can’t purchase 80/20 pork trim from a butcher shop). Or you can use 22 lbs. of lean pork and 3 lbs. of lean beef. Empty entire bag of seasoning into the 25 lbs. of meat and mix thoroughly (it works best if you cut the meat into small chunks first). Then stuff the sausage into natural hog casings for links. Or you can package the sausage in 1 lb. bulk freezer bags.
DeWied Salted Home Pack Size™ brand Sheep casings are vacuum packed in re-sealable zip-lock pouches – Instructions and recipes on each package
Stuffs 15 lbs. to 30 lbs. of meat – DeWied Natural Sheep Casings are edible.
These come in two main forms…Collagen Dry casings or Wet Pack Casings as we butchers call them. They both have there good points and bad points and for the home sausage maker I recommend the Collagen Dry style casings as they are easier to handle without to much fuss.
For my detailed explanation of how to use these casings correctly click over to my Sausages at Home page and a little down the page you will find direction of how butchers use them.
I’ve listed both types so you can try each variety and see which works best for you.
