Preparation

Stuffing

  • It is important to stuff to the recommended stuffing diameter
  • Stuffing too loose can create wrinkled product after cooking and cooling
  • Over stuffing can cause non- uniform diameter or breakage during stuffing or cooking

Clipping

  • It is crucial to use the right clip size to prevent clip slippage (too large) or casing tearing (too small)
  • Dialing in the correct clipping pressure is equally important
  • Make sure clipper is well maintained, functioning properly and free of rough or sharp edges

Cooking

  • Similar cooking cycles as used for fibrous casings can be used with cooked product in plastic casing
  • As there is virtually no moisture loss with these casings, products generally need to be formulated with lower initial water content

Cooling

  • After cooking, cool the product with water or in a brine chill
