Honey Baked Ham (the real deal)!
Newport Avenue Market is the only store east of the Cascades where you can buy authentic Honey Baked Hams. Order yours TODAY! Call Newport Avenue Market, 541-382-3940, and ask for the Meat Department.
There is only one real Honey Baked Ham. Known as the Gold Standard, the signature sweet crunchy glaze, slow smoked technique, authentic spiral slice, and ease of serving is the reason these hams are famous – no wonder they’re called the world’s best ham.
What size ham do I need? Honey Baked Hams are bone-in which means your will need 1/2-3/4 lb per serving.
How do I serve my Honey Baked Ham? At room temperature! It couldn’t be easier.
Honey Baked Hams are fully cooked and ready to enjoy. For the very best flavor, take the ham out of the refrigerator to stand at room temperature for 30 minutes before serving. Refrigerate unused portions immediately.
If you prefer your meat warmed, gently heat on low heat 275°F for 10 min per pound only by the slice, do not heat the entire ham. Heating may cause the meat to dry out and lose flavor.
Start with your favorite scalloped or au gratin recipe but kick it up a notch and use our Flagship White Cheddar and Gruyere de Comte, both found in our cheese case.
Preheat the oven to 375. Wash and trim the ends of enough fresh asparagus to serve 5-6 spears per person. Arrange on a cookie sheet and drizzle with olive oil (not too much), and roll to cover each spear. Sprinkle with salt & pepper and fresh grated parmesan cheese. Roast in the oven for 15- 20 minutes. Serve with a thyme sprig.
