Spiral Cut Ham Originated at HoneyBaked

The spiral cut ham was invented over 40 years ago by our founder, Harry J. Hoenselaar. Since then, The HoneyBaked Ham Company has become famous for its tender, juicy and delicious hams, not only for the way they are spiral sliced but for their mouth-watering irresistible, sweet and crunchy honey glaze - Harry's secret recipe.

Back then, Harry invented and patented a unique machine that slices a ham in a single, continuous spiral, making a presentation that is both attractive and practical for uniform serving sizes of his authentic HoneyBaked Ham. The ham is sliced through to the bone, making it easy to remove individual slices. Since then, HoneyBaked Ham has set the undisputed gold standard by which all other hams are judged.

Spiral Cut Convenience for Any Sized Crowd

No matter what the occasion or size of the crowd, our spiral cut ham selections make any meal a hit. While ham is traditionally served at Easter and often on Christmas, our mouth-watering honey glazed spiral hams are perfect for any occasion, holiday, picnic or family gathering. Because our hams are most delicious when served straight from the refrigerator, and because we spiral slice our hams for you, serving and clean up couldn't be simpler. And, because we offer three sizes of spiral cut ham - quarter, half and whole spiral hams- you can buy what you need to fit any occasion.

Freezing our spiral cut ham

Spiral slicing makes it easy to enjoy some or our wonderful spiral cut ham now and save some for later to enjoy on a picnic or at a tailgate party.

Your HoneyBaked Ham will retain its deliciousness for up to 6 weeks in the freezer. To freeze unused portions for later use, wrap in aluminum foil and place in the freezer. To serve again, place the ham in your refrigerator for 24-48 hours ahead of time to thaw.

Heating a HoneyBaked spiral ham

Your ham is already fully-cooked and ready to enjoy, and is best served directly from the refrigerator. If heating is desired, we recommend heating only those slices you plan to use and not the entire ham. However, you can wrap individual spiral slices in aluminum foil and heat them. If using a conventional oven, cover the entire ham (or portion to be used) and heat at 275 degrees F for about 10 minutes per pound. Place a shallow pan with water on the rack below the ham for additional moisture. Slices can also be heated in a skillet or used in grilled sandwiches, like our Grown-Up Grilled Ham & Cheese. HoneyBaked makes spiral cut ham delicious!
