Anyone got a line on sausage casings?

fresh or even frozen, just as long as I can get my hands on them sooner rather than later (waiting for the internet.) This has come up before, but not for several years - anyone know if Balduccis or Whole Foods carry them?

    Union Meat in the Eastern Market - real not synthetic, can't say if they've been frozen. Canales may have them too, wouldn't surprise me.

      I've also bought them at Litteri's.

        Ostrowski's, and they make some homemade saurkraut to go along with it.

          Lebanese Market on Lee Highway in Arlington
          They use them too...

            I don't know where you live but the Mars supermarket at the corner of Loch Raven Blvd. and Northern Parkway had them the last time I was there (about 1 month ago).

              Up here Bass Pro Shops carries collegen casings. If that's what you're looking for, you could try there.

                Yup, I get mine at the Mars grocery on Maiden Choice Lane near Arbutus.

                  in case anyone else was wondering, balduccis and wholefoods do not. i'm in DC, but considering making the drive to the fairfax wegmans where I know they'll have it, and the salted stuff will keep, so i can stock up.

                    call ahead, but I swear I've seen them regularly the last few months


                    either Union or Canales Meats.

                    I buy casings from www.makincasin.com and get them within 3 days. About $30.00 for 100 yards, any size both hog and sheep. Always fresh and salted. Last for months in the fridge.

                      Have you tried the German store in NoVa? I think I saw them there yesterday (but I was also at Italian, Greek, Thai, and Chinese stores as well.)
