Holiday Hams

Where to Find the Best Hams for Your Holiday Meal


Whether it's for Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas or New Year's Day, hams make a wonderful addition to your holiday dinner or buffet. Hams also make a wonderful holiday gift. Apparently late night talk show host David Letterman is a fan of pork because he often gives away canned hams during the taping of his TV show.

A nice ham is always the center of my family's Thanksgiving table. And leftovers make great sandwiches or a tasty pot of beans. Here are a few places other than your local grocery store to find a wonderful addition to your holiday table or special occasion.

1. The Honey Baked Ham Co.

Their crunchy sweet glaze just crackles with good taste. Fully-prepared, each ham is smoked for 24 hours, spiral sliced, honey baked and ready for your dinner table. Hams also make a tasty gift. Expedited shipping to 48 states available. Prices vary. Hams may be purchased from 1/4 to the whole ham. Prices are based according to weights. In 2012, a 7-pound ham was $85.95 (serves 12 for dinner/18 for buffet) and a 11-pound ham is $108.95 (serves 20 for dinner/30 for buffet).
