Can I freeze Hellers products?

"

Yes, all our products can be frozen directly in the freezer in their original packets. We recommend storing our products in the freezer for up to but no longer than 6 months.

If you have opened our products but want to freeze some, we recommend doing this within 2 days of opening.

We also recommend you place it in a clearly labelled and dated freezer bag, so you know how long it has been stored for.

Q: 

"

Why does the casing sometimes split when I cook a sausage?

"

Unfortunately, casings can be very temperamental, and they really don’t like a fast-cooking method over very hot direct heat.

They also like to be turned often and this is why we always recommend you cook a sausage slowly over medium-low heat especially on a BBQ where there is a direct flame.

Take the time to enjoy some banter over the BBQ while you cook them slowly instead of burning them fast!

Q: 

"

What is the best temperature to cook sausages?

Over medium-low heat and slowly turning often is better!
