    Where to buy sausage skins???? 31st Oct 06 at 12:46 AM
    Is there anyone who makes their own sausages?
    Where do you buy the skins to make them and which are best to use?
    Been looking at sausage making machine - love sausages but like to know what goes into them. Currently buying beef and horseradish ones online from Jimmy's farm cos they are yummy but not very os as quite expensive, but loved watching the programmesand loved the way he treats his animals. Any way going off topic now.
    Sausage skins anyone?
    Thanks

    Lakeland used to sell them although the veggie oens were not edible?! I guess you used them to shpe/cook your sausages but then had to cut them off?! The regular ones were OK but a little pricy at 4.95 for 2 meters. Don't know if they still sell them though....and I guess 2 meters is a lot of sausage!

    A lot of local butchers will sell them to you, since you're probably buying the meat off them anyway. I got a mincer from Lakeland that had a sausage attachment and it's really good. You can't beat knowing exactly what's in your banger!

    Hi,

    We get ours from Weschenfelders. Their Spice mixes are great too.

    Regards,

    Weschenfelders or sausagemaking.org is where I get mine. Hog casings are recommended for beginners, so that's what I use. And sausagemaking.org has a useful forum where you can get expert help.

    Thanks everyone for all your help.
    OH been laughing tonight about sausage maker etc.
    He had asked what I wanted for xmas - sausage maker and some traybake tins and silicon muffin moulds are top of my wish list this year.
    He wonders why he can't have a "normal" partner as most of friends wives want jewellery, clothes, perfume etc.Says he can't for shame tell his mates he bought a sausage maker for my xmas present
    From my point of view I would rather have something I really want and will actually use, there is only so much jewellery and perfume etc that you need.
    What do you guys think??????

    I see you are in the North West Sophiesmum, Boundary Mill at Colne had lots of silicone bakeware in their cookshop. Don't know how price compares to anywhere else though.

    Thirded ...though I do work in a butchers! They will happily sell you some sausage skins or chipolata skins (chipolata skins though are more expensive.) Just ask.

    Aldi had some in not that long ago but I'm sure they will all be gone by now.

    Hi
    Try natural sausage skins
    They are great quality and the girl there is very helpful. They also sell sausage packs which give you mixes and trays. Would be abit wary to buy from Amazon or E bay
