was wondering if anyone had ever tried making their own sausage casings from deer intestines. whats the process for cleaning them out etc i 'm guessing its more complicated than just flushing them out with water?
IMO, there's no advantage to using anything other than commercially prepared casings and it certainly wouldn't be worth the time to cure and prepare them for stuffing. They would need to be turned inside out, scraped, flushed, inspected, scraped and flushed again, inspected again, packed in salt etc., etc. and even then you couldn't be assured they'd hold up to the process.
you canuse them no problem.no waste ,i totally respect that kudos to you.they are small ,and you need to clean them well(doing it yourself rather then store bought will ensure that its done right)if your gonna use them all right away you can spare the salt.i clean by puttting them up to the faucet and cranking on the water for a while.if you need to store them then a good strong salt brine is in order.man i wish i was your neighbor,those are gonna be good.
