Quite a full explanation here:-
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sausage_casing

Though reading through I found this:-

Quote:
Vegetarian casings
Some innovative coextrusion processes have been developed in recent years, allowing 100% plant-based vegetarian casings to be created. Some special alginate coextrusion equipment is required to make casings that can be used in halal or kosher food making
Now I can understand making cases for religious purposes, what I can't get my head around is why a vegetarian would want sausages unless they miss meat so much they have to create poor substitutes to compensate for their bland diet.
A similar amount of puzzlement grips me when I see vegetarian burgers WHY?
Can we come to some sort of agreement? We (the meat eaters) took the humble sausage and burgers to our hearts, we had them first, stop your meddling or we will have to start creating rump steak that looks and tastes to all the world like a Brussels Sprouts or Bacon dressed to look and taste just like a Cauliflower, you veggies just won't know what you're eating. (You have been warned).

Re: Whatever Has Happened To Sausages?

Does it not also puzzle you when you see the adverts for 'The Vegetarian Butcher'?
Tell me Less...is it a legal requirement to stun carrots before they go into some vegetarian dish....do they bleed a lot.

And why would a vegetarian want a non meat burger that bleeds?
Isn't the thought of a 'bleeding burger' just too close to the thing they want to avoid?
I have come to the conclusion that the world has gone quietly and positively insane...and we are only just realising it

I make my own burgers out of lean minced beef and seasonings....nothing else.....if I presented himself with a burger that was bleeding, well I might also be requiring a bit of styptic too

Oh yes Less...do you know that there are things called a 'Cauliflower Steak'...cut from the widest bit of the cauliflower and fried like you would fry a nice bit of Rump....but believe me it is fooling nobody...it doesn't look like steak and definitely doesn't taste like steak...but it was treated humanely by the Vegetarian Butcher.

Re: Whatever Has Happened To Sausages?

You know Marge I have always had the idea that the females of our species do not have their giggle switches activated at birth but after reading your posts 33 and 34 I am prepared to accept tha "some" of them (do) have a sense of humour.

Of course I have a sense of humour.
When I was working I was noted for making my patients laugh.
Laughter is most certainly the very best medicine....it is a giggle that give your insides a jiggle...or at least that was what I told my ladies.
There was one antibiotic i used to dole out and say to the ladies it smelled like TCP...they said...'the anti septic'.....I said it was the new to me that Tom Cat Pee was antiseptic.
But I digress...the thread was about sausage skins...then we migrated to Vegetarian Butchers(what a ludicrous idea that is) and now we are on Tom Cat Pee.
That is one hell of a jump.

Not as wide as you'd think, said Tom cat widdling round by the chinky chuckout could well find himself as the "Chefs Special Sweet & Sour" or "Chefs Crispy fried Surprise" bit of Hoy Sin & Allspice ..... jobs a good 'un.
