Sausage: Main Image

Best to Buy

Make sure to buy sausage and hot dogs on or before the “sell by” date on the package. This date indicates the last day it should be offered for sale.

Prep & Store

Refrigerate fresh sausage in its original package for no more than two days. Semi-dry sausage keeps up to three weeks in the refrigerator. Dry sausage keeps up to six weeks refrigerated.

Check carefully to see whether sausage is fresh or cooked. Fresh sausage must be cooked thoroughly before eating. Sausage is done when the meat is gray and the juices run clear.

Quick & Easy Recipe

Grill sausage, turning frequently with tongs (a fork will pierce the sausage casing), until thoroughly cooked, 10 to 15 minutes.
