Do you take the skin off sausage before cooking?

Furthermore, are sausage casings edible?
The collagen for artificial casings is processed extensively. Most collagen casings are edible, but a special form of thicker collagen casings is used for salamis and large caliber sausages where the casing is usually peeled off the sausage by the consumer.
Secondly, do you take the casing off of Italian sausage? The easiest way to remove a sausage casing is to remove it while the sausage is uncooked. Cut sausage end to end with the tip of a knife. The cut should be shallow enough to pierce the casing—don't cut all the way through the sausage. Flip sausage over, cut side down.
Besides, do you need to peel sausage?
If it's fresh (raw) sausage meat, it is usually packed in a natural casing (hog or sheep intestine) which is edible since you need to cook the sausage in the casing prior to eating. The casing on peperoni is usually a fibrous collagen casing that you can eat, but I usually peel it before using.
Do you take the skin off summer sausage?
These may be dry salamis, summer sausage, cotto, and other French or Italian meats. Then there are sausages that have paper or plastic skins, definitely remove that before cooking or eating the meat. Then there are some raw and salted or smoked sausages which use animal intestines for the (natural) casing.
