Speck, a smoked Prosciutto from Trentino-Alto Adige in north-eastern Italy, is typically served with rye or whole-grain breads and
sweet farmhouse butter at the start of a meal. Bring 1 quart of water to a boil. Add the asparagus and salt; cook 5 minutes, or until the asparagus is crisp-tender. Drain and place in a bowl of ice water. Drain again. Lay the slices of Speck on a counter. Top each with an asparagus spear. Roll into bundles and arrange on a platter.
