Making our own sausages for sausage stuffing-ISO sheeps casings

My mother and I are planning on making our own breakfast sausages for the sausage and chestnut stuffing recipe we use for Thanksgiving. A place online suggested sheeps casings because it is a smaller diameter. Any ideas on where I could get them in the Boston area? TIA

  1. im not entirely sure this will be helpful, but whole foods makes their own sausages, including the smaller breakfast sausages, so it might be worth talking to one of the butchers there and seeing if he can sell you some of the casings... i guess pretty much any butcher that makes their own would be a good place to start.

      Maybe you could also try John Dewar . They're a really good butchery and I bet they'd have everything you need.

    2. Google Eldon's sausage and Jerky, They are quick and dependable.

      1. Sausage patties. Much less work.

        1. Whole foods does indeed have casings, and they promised to seel me some a while ago, once they figured out how to price them (my suggestion that they give them to me for free did not work). I ended up ordering casings online at The ones packed in salt are saif to last for a very long time -- a year at least -- so if you plan to make more in the future this is a good option. I have not worked with the sheeps casings but the butcher at Whole Foods told me they are delicate and therefore a bit more difficult to stuff than pork casings.
