Making Homemade Sausage Hot Links : How to Prepare Sausage Casings

Uploaded by expertvillage on 13.12.2007

Hi my name is Karl James owner of Creolesoul catering located in Round Rock, Texas and
on behalf of Expert Village I'm here to show you how to make hot links. Okay we are preparing
our casing here and we had them soaking in some warm water for a while and they start
to separate and you can see how pliable they get and we have a few of them here and we
are taking them apart separating them and then what we are going to do is find the end
and we are basically going to open it up and then we are going to run some water through
it. This way we can check to see if there is any holes in the casing, as well rinse
that salt that they where packed in so we got one right here threaded onto our nozzle
of our sink and we would rinse some water through it. It will start to fill up and we
would just let it run through and we see that there is not leakage here so we got a good
casing there. So we would put that to the side and we would use that and we would continue
to search to our casing separating them, finding the end and then threading it on to our nozzle
here our faucet. Then run water through it and we would move on to our stuffing step
so see you there.
