    I guess I don't get out much, but what is Nduja?

  5. Good question. They look like loaves of bread. Enlighten us please.
     
  6. I googled it.

    Spicy Spreadable Salami. 

    Nduja (say "en-doo-ya") is a spicy spreadable salami, originating from Calabria. Nduja is cured in a casing like hard salami, but it maintains a soft texture that is spreadable at room temperature.  Nduja will change the way you think about salami. It is perfect  when spread on grilled bread, in a sandwich, or on pizza. It adds amazing flavor to pasta sauces, vegetables and cooked beans.
     
  7. Exactly, Alelover.  However, I've been told that the boccalone version is not a great representative of what this salame is.  It is addictive.

    Ok, Sc0tty-can you quit being a tease now and share the recipe with us - please?

    Thanks
     
  10. That's easy, 70% ground pork jowl or belly, 30% pepper(combo of hot and sweet red pepper powder).  Plus, cure #2 and a lactic starter.  Stuffed in hog middle end caps and/or hog middles and cold smoked for about 30 hours.
     
  11. DAME, my butcher is out of hog middles   [​IMG]
     
  12. I have plenty of both casings, sir.
