Usage Instructions:

For the best results, follow these steps:

  • Grind, Mix, and Cure: Prepare your meat, grinding and mixing it as required. Ensure it's well-cured before moving on.

  • Add Sausage Tang: Once your meat is ready, add the Encapsulated Citric Acid to the mix. Make sure it's evenly distributed.

  • Do Not Re-Grind: Very important - Do not re-grind the meat after adding the encapsulated citric acid.

  • Stuff and Cook Immediately: Immediately stuff your sausages, ensuring the internal temperature reaches 150 degrees F for the acid to release. For extra safety, cook to 165 degrees F.

  • Cool and Dry: After cooking, cool your sausages with an ice/water bath. Then, allow them to firm up by hanging in a well-ventilated space or refrigerating for a few weeks.
