A spreadable sausage
The Mixed Stew crew just recently discovered this “spreadable salami” aka Nduja. Yes, it’s best applied with a butter knife. This type of sausage originates from the Calabria region of Southern Italy. Boccalone sells 6 - 8 oz rolls for $ 28.00. Nduja is most commonly made from pork jowls, pork shoulders, and pork belly. Authentic nduja is spreadable at room temperature. Expect a slightly peppery flavor that’s enhanced by a rich and smooth texture. Italians like to serve this salami on bruschetta, with bits of cheese, or may add a portion to their traditional pasta sauces. Boccalone also sells other fine meats and sausages.
