Are hard to find in hog country. Or even in Amish country. Went to shipshewana today and shopped at the bulk food store. Mainly buying spices and salt. You use a lot of salt resalting casings.   Tongue

No sheep casings. Guess I get to order some.

I have to order my casings online. Nothing local. Even Cabelas only has tiny teaser packs of casings.

Bringing this thread back up.  Casings don't last forever so ordered a smaller amount of fresh casing today.  Sheep, hog and collagen.  This will be my first attempt with sheep casings.

I'm curious how that goes for you. For breakfast sausage, I assume?

Yes breakfast and honey ham sticks.  If it works out I'll post the recipe.

I don't know why but sheep casings like to tangle way more than hog casings and drive me nuts!
