Sausage stuffer

You need a sausage stuffer lớn get your meat mass into the casing. If you are starting out you can also add an attachment to lớn your grinder or use a modified plastic bottle or funnel.

Sausage casings

Chicken Sausage is traditionally filled into natural casings.

I recommend hog casings caliber 28 / 30. If you like to make thinner sausages, sheep casings caliber 20/22 are very good.

If you would lượt thích to prepare the sausages without casing: You can just form the mass into patties and fry them out without a casing or preserve them in a jar.

To be honest, this is a complete matter of taste. I personally lượt thích chicken sausage quite fine và therefore I use the finer perforated disc (3mm). But as I said… It must taste good to you!


6. Add the spices to the minced mixture và mix well.


7. Put the casing onto the sausage stuffer. Typically, you need to put the casings into a lukewarm water 30 min before you use them. This will ensure that they can be put onto the stuffer.


8. Fill the meat into the casing. Hold the casing tightly on the filling spout và let it slowly fill up more và more. This part needs some practice. Vì not worry if it does not work 100%.

Important: do not fill the casing too full, otherwise it will burst later when roasting.


9. Now it’s time to link the sausages. You can decide for yourself how big your Chicken sausage should be. Put the sausage between your thumb và forefinger. Rotate the sausage away from you then move to the next links and rotate it toward you.

As with the filling process you will need some practice to lớn get it perfect.

What is the shelf life of the chicken sausage?

Depending on how you handle it after production, the chicken sausage has a different shelf life.

Raw it can be kept in the refrigerator for about 1-2 days.

If you scald it directly after production at 75 degrees Celsius for 25 minutes, it can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for about a week.

Alternatively, you can freeze it raw or poach them. They will keep for up khổng lồ 6 months và will not thua thảm any flavor.

I usually consume the chicken sausages directly or freeze them raw.
