Sausage: Main Image


Storage methods for sausage depend on whether it is a fresh, semi-dry, or dry type. Leave sausage its original wrapping. Over-wrap fresh sausage with foil to keep meat juices from contaminating other food, and store in the coldest part of the refrigerator for no more than two days. Semi-dry sausage keeps two to three weeks in the refrigerator. Dry sausage keeps four to six weeks refrigerated. To keep fresh sausage longer than two days, wrap in foil or freezer bags and store in the freezer for two to three months. To quick-thaw, place sausage in a shallow baking dish, cover, and defrost in the microwave for six to eight minutes. Separate sausage links. Break up sausage and turn several times while thawing.
