Xuanwei Ham

Last updated by chinatravel at 2014/5/3

Produced in Xuanwei County in northeast Yunnan, the ham, also called Yunnan Ham, is fresh and delicious, with thin skin and thick fresh. The ham used to be packaged in cans. Nowadays the cut slices are sold in plastic wrappers, and the other parts are sold in plastic bags, box, bamboo tube or bottle. You can fry, cook, decoct, or braise the ham and make a very delicious dish.

As a rule, Xuanwei ham is processed during winter. Select the best pork leg and press out the blood completely. Rub it with salt and smoke or air it dry after the salt penetrates to a certain depth of the meat. Try to test the pork in three days when the surface of the pork turns green. Then it can be preserved well in cellar with low moisture or in a warehouse with good air conditioning.
