Sweet, Crunchy Honey Ham Glaze is Our Signature

Our honey ham glaze has been a significant part of what has made The HoneyBaked Ham Company famous. Often imitated but never duplicated, our signature ham glaze imparts a unique sweetness and satisfying crunch to every slice of every ham we make.

An Amazing Ham Glaze that's Like No Other

Traditionally, home cooks and restaurant chefs alike have experimented with a number of ham glaze recipes that will make their ham just a little extra special. Ham glazes have been tried with everything from brown sugar to pineapple, cloves, coca cola, honey mustard, apricot and just about every flavor you can imagine. Some of these ham glaze recipes work quite well for enhancing the flavor of the ham, but over the years there's never been a honey ham glaze like the one we use in making every HoneyBaked ham.

Our honey glaze is Harry J. Hoenselaar's secret recipe

Ever since Harry J. Hoenselaar founded The HoneyBaked Ham Company more than 50 years ago, the recipe for the honey ham glaze he used to perfect his ham has been a closely-kept family secret. The honey glaze Harry used to finish his ham was a uniquely delicious combination of sweet and crunchy. It's part of what made HoneyBaked hams the gold standard against which all other hams are judged. Since then, three generations of the Hoensalaar family have kept his secret, and every ham we make is still uniquely enhanced with the same mouth-watering glaze that makes HoneyBaked hams famous.

Adding the ham glaze after spiral slicing brings extra flavor to the table

Harry also patented the spiral slicer he invented that created perfectly sized ham portions every time. And because our hams are sliced before they are hand finished with his wonderful honey ham glaze, there's an added opportunity for that heavenly flavor to find its way inside the ham. That means every slice carries the extra portion of goodness that Harry was after. It only seems fitting that our family would continue making each ham just the way Harry did.

Our delicious glaze means even more flavorful ham leftovers

If you've ever enjoyed the signature taste of a HoneyBaked Ham and were fortunate enough to have leftovers, you know what we mean when we say that Harry's secret honey ham glaze adds something extra special to leftover ham recipes - so much so that most people order a larger ham than they know they'll need for their main event. That's why we have plenty of ideas for leftovers in our recipes section, and you'll want to try some of them the next time you have leftover HoneyBaked ham. Whether it's a soup, salad, omelet or casserole you highlight with our leftover ham, you'll agree that leftovers never tasted so good.
