Hi,Thanks for changing the title!! That would have made it hard to find!!You would be amazed at the history of natural casings and sausages in general. Below is a link with a brief history for you:http://www.insca.org/index.php/en/history-of-natural-casingsYou might need to fix the link but hopefully you get the idea!! I would really like to trace the origins of the meat industry in the UK some time soon.
