Labels?



  • I have a chamber vac sealer and have been having trouble is labeling the packages. I run labels through my printer and stick them to the pouches but they all loosen up or fall off. I’ve been using weather proof laser labels. Any suggestions for a better label?

    @WIJIM When are you putting the labels on? I usually vac pack them then label them before I put them in the fridge or freezer. If you are labelling the bags first that might be part of the problem but my labels are specifically from a label maker. What kind of laser printer are you using?



  • I cover my labels with clear packaging tape. They never come off and the paper label is water proof.



  • @jonathon I put them on before I seal so maybe that is the problem…I’ll give it a try after sealing. I use Avrey weatherproof labels and run them through my HP color laser printer.

  • @peculiarb You can have an issue with pickled jalapenos and getting the meat to properly bind to them.
    You can blanch fruits and veggies before adding them to sausage and that will help. Some people add them straight in, but blanching will help the meat bind together with the jalapenos. Not a requirement though. If the jalapenos don’t bind perfectly into the meat, when you slice the summer sausage, the jalapenos may not fully stick to the meat and just fall off the slices. It won’t hurt the sausage, but it may not be 100% perfect. I would at least dry the jalapenos thoroughly, but blanching would provide the best results.

    Has anyone ever used pickled jalapeños in their summer sausage? I have a buddy who gave me a jar of picked jalapeños to add to his summer sausage I am going to make for him. Is this a bad idea? I’ve always used dried jalapeños in the past. Please advise! Thanks.

    @mikesmeats,

    I have only made about three batches of snack sticks so far but, I have found that adding an extra ounce of water ( per 5lb batch) over what is called for in the recipe, makes the meat “flow just a little easier when stuffing into casings.

    So far, the texture of the finished product has been great and I have had no problem with casings breaking etc. from the excess moisture.

    I recently had a 26 lb batch of summer sausage end up with brown spots here and there? Could this be from cure not evenly mixed ??? Or from encapsulated citric acid not fully mixed in??? I’m thinking eca wasn’t mixed in good enough because cure was put in initially with spices and binder and I mixed by hand till I got good protein extraction because it was very sticky ???0_1544920450978_26672209-28F6-4E2D-8CB7-BA2CE5A73BAF.jpeg
