‘Nduja is a spicy dip-spread-sauce from Calabria.

The epicenter of this fiery salami was Spilinga, a small town in Calabria. N’duja is made from the head trimmings of the pig, as well as some fatback, skin, belly fat, and it is all minced and tossed with almost an equal amount of fiery peperoncino. I’ve tried it as a spread, and slightly warmed as a dip on crusty bread, but also had a firecracker pasta with ‘nduja in the tomato sauce.
