Sausage Casings, for all varieties
We have been making sausage since we were old enough to help our German grandfather when he make his traditional sausage every fall. Since then we have experimented with many varieties of sausage from fish to venison and everything in between. We do NOT make the sausage for you, but do sell the casings and recipes for nearly any sausage you wish to make. All casings prices include free shipping and Grandpa's Original German Recipe. Locally (call for specifics) we will come to your house/business and help you and your friends to make their own sausage.
