ISO: Sausage Casings

miroslavw Nov 4, 2007 10:17 PM

Hey all,

I was thinking of whipping up some Toulouse for the Thanksgiving Dins but wanted to see if I could get casings locally before doing an online order.

Anyone know of a shop in SF for buying fresh casings? (not the ones for making cured sticks)

Thanks in advance,

    Thanks for the responses everyone. I'll take your advice and approach a butcher that makes sausage. Drewes is the closest... if that doesn't work I am off to Falletti.

      I get mine at Lunardi's. Just ask the butcher for them.

        Falletti's butcher counter. Call first in case they're out.

          Also in the East Bay, Cafe Rouge butcher shop carries them. You do have to ask. Basically, any one who makes their own sausage also has the casings and most are willing to sell them.

            Ver Brugge in Rockridge has sold them to me in the past, but I havn't made sausage in a couple years.

            If no one has a source in SF, Taylor's Sausage in Old Oakland Housewives Marketplace carries them.
