This Easter, The Honey Baked Ham Company is getting ready to hand-glaze premium hams for holiday celebrations across the country. Each Honey Baked Ham and Turkey Breast is individually crafted by professionally trained and certified Master Glazers. Using a unique torching process and secret blend of ingredients, HoneyBaked’s 200 plus Master Glazers across the country create the perfectly sweet and crunchy glaze that has been enjoyed by HoneyBaked-lovers for more than 60 years.

“Glazing is an art,” says Brian Heffern, HoneyBaked Master Glazer of 14 years. “It starts with hand-coating 12 layers of our special-recipe blend of ingredients on a spiral-sliced ham. The layers are sifted onto the top of the ham in a circular motion one layer at a time, as the Master Glazer evenly hand-coats the tops and sides of the ham with delicious flavor.”

“This is followed by a torch that melts and caramelizes the glaze into every layer of the ham, fusing the sweet and savory flavors into each slice of ham. The glaze drips down the sides of the ham to cover every inch in golden glaze,” adds Heffern.

The delicate process requires precision, craft and weeks of practice so that every ham and turkey breast meets the standards of the Master Glazers. In 90 seconds, each ham goes from sliced and unseasoned to beautifully colored and crispy with a mouthwatering flavor.

This Easter, consumers can enjoy their signature glaze with the following HoneyBaked holiday meals, perfect for gatherings of all sizes, available at retail locations:
