About National Glazed Spiral Ham Day
A glazed spiral ham is a type of ham that has been pre-cooked, sliced into a spiral shape, and then coated with a sweet glaze.
The spiral cut allows for the glaze to penetrate the meat and create a flavorful and moist ham. The glaze is typically made with a combination of brown sugar, honey, mustard, and spices such as cloves, cinnamon, and nutmeg. The ham is then baked in the oven to allow the glaze to caramelize and form a crispy crust on the outside of the ham.
Glazed spiral hams are a popular choice for holiday meals, especially Easter and Christmas, and are often served with traditional side dishes such as mashed potatoes, green beans, and rolls.
They can be purchased pre-cooked and pre-glazed at most grocery stores or can be made at home with a little effort and preparation.
