Sausage casings online?

edgrover | Jan 6, 2009 08:06 AM

I just moved to Calgary from San Francisco. Yes, its cold, but we needed to be around family and sixteen years on temporary visas gets a little depressing. The butcher shops are actually a bright spot - I found foie gras lobes just sitting in the freezer case at Bon Ton for a price about the same as what I saw in SF in specialty shops.

Anyway, I used to order sausage casings from Cabellas or a company in Chicago (and of course I couldn't move my supply up here) to make boudin blanc and weisswurst and the like. I can get them in the short term from various butchers here in Calgary, but I'd like to order a variety in semi-bulk without having to pay for duty. Where can I order sausage casings online in Canada?

I've looked through Google and Yahoo with no luck - there's lots of bulk companies like Unipac, but they don't sell online and I'm doubtful they'd sell me a couple of boxes.
