NATIONAL GLAZED SPIRAL HAM DAY – April 15

NATIONAL GLAZED SPIRAL HAM DAY

National Glazed Spiral Ham Day is a food holiday celebrated annually on April 15.   This gourmet looking dish, often found at a holiday feast, originated in the basement of a home back in 1957.

Working out of his basement, Harry J. Hoenselaar of Detroit, Michigan, developed a special way to cook, slice and glaze ham.  It was in 1957 that he invented the spiral slicer leading to the starting of his own store and company, HoneyBaked Ham.

A traditional glazed ham is baked with a glaze consisting of sugar, honey or orange juice.  Spices, to add additional flavor are often added.

Now you can find hundreds of recipes from Pineapple Honey Glazed to Dijon Maple Glazed Ham.  Search through different recipes, find your favorite, turn on your oven and enjoy a delicious ham dinner.
