Westphalian ham (German: Westfälischer Schinken) is a ham produced from acorn-fed pigs raised in the forests of Westphalia, Germany. The resulting meat is dry cured and then smoked over a mixture of beechwood and juniper branches.
In the early 1900s, there were three varieties of Westphalia ham: kugel cut, boneless and rolled, and regulation ham.
In the early 1900s, significant quantities of Westphalian ham were being exported from Germany into the United States.
