N’duja (indueea) is a HOT, soft, spreadable pork salami. It’s a typical food of Calabria, Italy. As you can see in the photos, it has a bright orange red color. This is because the salami is made with lots of red chili peppers, which are grown all over Calabria.
Every year on August 8th, in the small town of Spilinga, where it is said to have originated, there is a festival honoring this beloved salami. There are street vendors and restaurants serving up all types of food using n’duja. The festival always ends with the traditional Italian dance “tarantella” and fireworks. Calabrians take this very seriously.
N’duja isn’t easy to find. If you want to try this recipe and can’t find it, sub it with a hot spicy sausage.
I must warn you, if you use n’duja, it is spicy. Use as much as your palate could handle.
