Best Ways To Store And Use Sausages

Best Storage

The fridge is the best place to store sausages.

All raw meat should be stored at the bottom of the fridge in a clean, sealed package or container to avoid it from touching or dripping onto other things.

Ensure your fridge is set between 0 and 4°C.

Can I Freeze It?


Raw and cooked sausages can be frozen. Separate into portion sizes before freezing so that you can defrost exactly what you need. Defrost in the fridge overnight.

Fresher For Longer

Always keep cooked meats in the fridge, well wrapped and away from raw meat.

Use It Up

Refrigerate or freeze sausages as soon as you get home from the grocery store. Once defrosted and thawed, cook raw meat within 24 hours.

The cooked meat will last a couple of days in the fridge or it can then be refrozen again. Defrost and eat within 24 hours.

Always check the instructions on the packaging after purchasing. Sausage meat squeezed from their skins is a great alternative to minced beef or pork.

Did You Know?

Sausages may be preserved by curing, drying, smoking or freezing.
