Nduja is a spicy, spreadable salami that hails from the Calabria region of Italy. And let me tell you, it packs a punch! It is made from pork, spicy peppers, and a whole lot of love. The meat is ground up and mixed with hot chilli peppers, giving it it’s signature fiery flavour.  The mixture is then stuffed into a casing and aged for a few months, allowing the flavours to meld together and intensify.
