What is ‘nduja?

‘Nduja is spicy, spreadable sausage from southern Italy. It’s made from pork, fat, herbs, spices and local Calabrian chillies, which give the sausage its heat and dark red colour. It doesn’t require cooking and is often spread on toast, mixed into sauces and stews to add flavour, and used as a pizza topping.
