    Re: Freezing Sausages Question

    Im certainly no expert, but in general ground meat doesnt last as long as whole cuts. We usually make 20lb batches at a time and often give around 5lbs away to friends and family. My family of 4 goes through that amount in a couple of months. I also put about 1/4 of the batch into patties (without stuffing into casings) as we use the sausage meat in pasta sauces etc.

    I would probably want to eat frozen sausage within 6 months. Its probably fine longer, but 6 months is what I have heard is recommended by food/health people.

    Questions:

    1) how long do your game sausages last in the freezer?
    2) would it be better to get them made up in batches - freeze some meat and get a new batch of sausage made up in, say, February?

    Thanks

    I also vacuum seal my sausages (6 per pack, which is a good amount for me and my family), so there is no issue with freezer burn.
