Spiral Ham Originated with HoneyBaked

Did you know the spiral ham originated at HoneyBaked Ham Company? Over 50 years ago, Harry J. Hoenselaar opened the first HoneyBaked Ham Company store in Michigan. He made hams one at a time - and made sure every one met his exacting quality standards. He'd start with only the best quality bone-in ham, marinate it in his secret curing recipe, smoke it for as long as 24 hours over select hickory embers, slice it and then glaze it with his now-famous honey sweet and crunchy glaze. At that time, the spiral ham was born, Harry patented the unique spiral slicer he invented and the rest is history.

Why Spiral Slicing Makes Ham Better

There are a number of benefits to spiral sliced hams. For one, spiral slicing is convenient. You don't need to worry about carving your ham when you buy a HoneyBaked spiral ham. Secondly, spiral slicing creates uniform, perfectly sized servings of our moist and delicious ham. Third, the spiral cut makes the ham more attractive when it's placed on your table. Plus, because Harry spiral sliced his ham first and then added his delectable sweet glaze, none of the glaze is lost during the slicing process. After 3 generations, Harry's way is still the best way to make a mouth-watering ham.

No matter how you slice it, ham makes a great meal

HoneyBaked spiral ham is tender, juicy, moist and absolutely delicious. And all of our hams are made the same way - using Harry's process and standards that have been passed on to his children and grandchildren. No matter what the occasion - holiday, picnic, party or family gatherings, a HoneyBaked ham will be the center of attention. We do all the work - you and your family and guests just enjoy. You can enjoy our spiral sliced ham right after you buy it (allow 24-48 hours to thaw in the refrigerator if you had the ham delivered to your door) or store it in the freezer for up to 6 weeks.
