April 15th


National Glazed Spiral Ham Day is a food holiday observed annually on April 15.   This gourmet looking dish often found at a holiday feast, originated in the basement of Harry J. Hoenselaar.
In 1952, the Detroit, Michigan entrepreneur patented not only his spiral slicer but the ham glaze as well.  His innovative device made it possible for the entire bone-in ham to be sliced in one continuous and even spiral.  The result was not only perfect for baking and serving.  It was also a beautifully rendered main course.  Then in 1957, Hoenselaar founded HoneyBaked Ham. (MY FAVORITE!!!!)
