Method of use

Instructions for use and heat treatment:

  • casing is ready for use straight from the package; do not wet the casing!
  • casing should be applied in dry conditions
  • place casing on the funnel of sausage stuffer and fill tightly; do not overfill the casing as it may burst
  • clip the filled casing or tie it with sausage-making twine
  • in order to shape the product, tighten it and use netting moulds and then apply heat treatment
  • for moulded products, fill the casing slightly more loosely so that the product can be pressed
  • apply heat treatment to the product hanging or lying down:

exemplary outline of heat treatment for poultry product with smooth surface (not-slightly-dried):

  • slightly parboiling at 60°C in the chamber – 35 minutes (some manufacturers use parboiling to soften the collagen so that the final product is more delicate at biting, and to reduce the product loss during heat treatment) – this stage may be omitted according to the personal preferences of the client
  • drying at 58°C in the chamber – until the surface is dried (approx. time: 1 hour 20 minutes) – this stage cannot be omitted as collagen layer and meat integrate in the process
  • smoking at 65°C in the chamber – until the desired colour is obtained (approx. time: 15-25 minutes, depending on the desired colour of the final product)
  • parboiling at 75°C until the core of the bar is at 72°C
  • after the heat treatment, put the product into the shower for approx. 30 minutes
  • after the product initially cools off, it must be refrigerated
  • after the product is refrigerated to 4°C, remove twine and pack the product

exemplary outline of heat treatment for moulded and slightly dried product produced based on the stuffing of the Krakowska Sausage (dried):

  • drying at 60°C in the chamber until the surface is dried (collagen and meat integrate irreversibly in the process; do not exceed the recommended temperature of drying)
  • smoking at 60°C in the chamber, approx. time of smoking is 20 minutes
  • parboiling at 78°C until the geometric centre of the bar is at 72°C
  • dried products should not be cooled off with water but slightly dried
  • you can apply drying process applicable for a typical Krakowska Sausage or you can dry the product for 12 hours at 55°C in the chamber, and then additionally dry it until obtaining the desired capacity of the final product
  • before putting into distribution, the product must be packed in MAP or VAC
  • before packing, remove twine from the finished product
  • notice: the casing is not suitable for baking
