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.

Exactly, Alelover.  However, I've been told that the boccalone version is not a great representative of what this salame is.  It is addictive.

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.

DAME, my butcher is out of hog middles   head-wall.gif
