Sometimes the skin of the boerewors, also known as the casing, is quite tough to bite through. Hog casings, used for thicker boerewors, are generally tougher than sheep casings used for thinner boerewors. Naturally they will be tougher to bite through. However – the real culprits are inferior casings, which are hard to bite through due to the method used to clean them.
All the casing sold by Freddy Hirsch (our partner on “Project Boerewors”) are tenderbite. Don’t worry; they deliver to some of the major supermarket groups as well as to many independent butchers. Find the names of participating butcheries in the downloads section of this website.
