HoneyBaked is Most Famous for our Honey Hams
Our honey hams have been setting the gold standard by which all other hams are judged for three family generations. Ever since our founder Harry J. Hoenselaar started making hams with his sweet and crunchy honey glaze over 50years ago, all other hams have paled in comparison. In addition to his secret recipe honey glaze, Harry used a secret marinade and patented a unique spiral slicing machine. The Hoenselaar family has been making the same great ham the same way ever since. It's no wonder our ham has achieved the reputation as the most juicy, tender and delicious ham in the country.
The Finest Quality Ham with the Best Flavor and Appearance
We start with only the finest grade, premium quality bone-in hams. After all, you can't make the best honey hams if you start with an inferior product. Using bone-in hams delivers more moisture and flavor because the bone helps keep the ham moist during the smoking process. Plus, Harry used his special marinade before smoking each ham for up to 24 hours over choice hardwood embers. He knew that his method would give superior results when it came to moistness, juiciness and tenderness of the meat. He also knew that the slow smoking process would impart the most flavor throughout the ham. That's why, even after 50 years, we haven't changed a thing.
Spiral slicing our honey hams to perfection
While he wanted to marinate and smoke each ham on the bone, Harry invented a unique spiral slicer, which he later patented, so that carving around a bone wouldn't be an inconvenience for his customers. His slicer made one continuous spiral slice in the ham all the way down to the bone. It was the perfect way to slice his honey hams because it resulted in uniformly sized portions, made an attractive presentation on the serving plate and made it easy to separate ham slices into sections, some of which could then be saved for later enjoyment.
It's all about the uniquely delicious sweet and crunchy honey ham glaze
Harry also had a secret recipe for his honey glaze. It's just a part of what made his honey hams so famous. His secret recipe has been passed down to his children and grandchildren and we use the same honey glaze today. We find there's simply no better glaze for ham. Our glaze is sweet and crunchy with unique flavor. It's been the crowning touch for our hams for over 50years now.
