Nduja di Spilinga in Glass Jar
Nduja is a typical sausage from Spilinga, made with pork and hot Calabrian chilli peppers. Jarred 'nduja' is made with the already seasoned 'nduja' in the classic natural casing called 'orba'. The orba is opened, the mixture is ground and olive oil is added to obtain a smooth and creamy consistency.
The result is a cream that can be used in many ways, and the jar packaging is perfect for modern, practical and quick consumption.

Few people know that the name 'NDUJA' derives from the French 'andouille', an ancient spicy sausage made from tripe and pork offal that Gioacchino Murat, during his reign in Naples (1806-1815), is said to have distributed free of charge to working-class youths, the famous 'lazzaroni di Napoli', in order to ingratiate himself with them and win their favour.
Today, the ingredients have been refined and replaced by simple cuts of pork such as guanciale, pancetta and lard.
Nduja is also very popular in the United States, especially in Louisiana and New Orleans.

Spilinga 'nduja in the kitchen
It seemed impossible to find a sausage that could be used in an infinite number of ways in the kitchen. Instead, 'nduja has risen to the challenge and, thanks to its versatility, has become an essential ingredient in so many recipes.
Indeed, 'nduja is used to
- add flavour to sauces
- Seasoning pizzas
- to accompany mature cheeses
- in legume soups
The most classic use is on a bread crouton, which we recommend made from durum wheat with a firm crumb, lightly toasted so that the nduja melts slightly, softening the bread and enhancing the spiciness in the mouth.
