Westphalian Ham is similar to prosciutto in that it is dry cured. The hogs are raised in the
Northern German region of Westphalia. The difference is that Westphalian ham is smoked over
Beechwood coals. Here are a few places to find it, I find it at German meat markets but online you can get it at
Schaller and Weber or the

First take off the tough end of the asparagus. Then lay out the thin sliced Westphalian ham or prosciutto and put the end on the ham.

Roll the ham at an angle... it goes all the way up. the stalk to the tip.

Place on a cookie sheet and brush with olive oil. Bake for 15 min at 400 degrees F till tender but still crisp.

This is a great appetizer. Here we served them with cold sliced meats and rye bread for a light meal.

The spears keep there shape well when only cooked to the crisp tender state.

You can also make this a main dish.
