HoneyBaked Honey Ham Glaze is a Family Secret

The mouth-watering honey ham glaze used by HoneyBaked Ham has been passed down through three family generations by our founder Harry J. Hoenselaar more than 50 years ago. It's been the crowning touch for every HoneyBaked ham since. He'd smother each of his premium hams with his sweet, crackling, crunchy glaze. Along with the spiral slices made by a machine that Harry invented and patented, our glaze has been what makes HoneyBaked the gold standard by which all honey hams are measured. Others have tried to imitate our glaze, but none have succeeded.

Brown Sugar, Pineapple, Honey Mustard Glaze for Ham

Traditionally, cooks have tried basic brown sugar, honey mustard and honey pineapple ham glazes and other creative ways to get the most flavor from a ham. It's true that honey, pineapple and brown sugar are all very good ingredients when it comes to ham glaze. But in the end, nothing beats the wonderful sweetness and crunch of the HoneyBaked glaze. If you want the incomparable taste of HoneyBaked ham, you'll just have to buy one, enjoy some at a company or catered outing, or receive one as a gift.

Our secret honey glaze is just part of what makes our ham so special

In addition to his secret recipe honey glaze, when Harry J. Hoenselaar founded the company, he had discovered other secrets to making the best, most flavorful and juiciest ham. First, he'd select only premium, tender bone-in hams. He wouldn't settle for second best. He'd marinate the ham then slow smoke it over a unique blend of hardwood chips for nearly 24 hours. Next, he'd spiral slice the ham with his patented spiral slicer all the way to the bone. Finally, he'd smother the smoked and spiral sliced ham with his secret recipe honey ham glaze. Through the years, Harry's process of making one ham at a time was shared with his children and grandchildren who have carried on his tradition faithfully. As a result, the HoneyBaked Ham Company has grown to more than 400 retail stores across the country and now sells its signature honey-glazed ham online and delivers it right to your door.

Our sweet, crackling honey ham glaze makes leftovers heavenly

Because we spiral slice our ham before we drench it in our famous honey ham glaze, the sweet honey taste of the glaze is more evenly distributed into the ham. That means recipes made with HoneyBaked ham deliver a deliciously unique taste like no other. Check our Recipes section and you'll see what we mean. Our ham is not only great for sandwiches, it's used to make wonderful soups, salads, pasta dishes and any number of deliciously creative entrees for an easy to prepare meal or side dish your family and guests will love.
