ATLANTA, Nov. 24, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- In the spirit of sharing traditions and creating cherished moments this Thanksgiving, The Honey Baked Ham Company, the specialty food retailer of turkey, premium ham, and other food products, shares time-tested tips for making the most out of your holiday ham.
While the season also can produce its fair share of stress, the treasured celebrations and memories that come with the holidays ultimately make all the extra effort, preparation and thoughtfulness worth it at the end of the day.
Thankfully, with a little bit of planning and a few tricks up your sleeve, it's easy to capture the spirit of the season, especially when you bring family and friends together for the most-memorable meal of the year.
"By trusting HoneyBaked for your important occasions, you can celebrate life's special moments and share the best-tasting ham with those you cherish, all while saving valuable time," says Maggie DeCan,@mdecan, president and chief operating officer of The Honey Baked Ham Company. "HoneyBaked is proud to be an honored guest at millions of holiday celebrations nationwide, helping to give hostesses peace of mind and allowing more time for family and friends."
Making the most of your holiday ham is easy, assures DeCan, who outlines some basic advice here.
Simplify Servings: As a rule of thumb, plan on each person eating about 1/3 to 1/2 of a pound of ham. (However, if you're also planning on enjoying leftovers, consider purchasing a slightly larger ham.)
Save Time: Purchase a fully cooked ham. HoneyBaked will do the hard work for you. Visit HoneyBaked.com to find the store closest to your home.
Enhance Any Recipe: Dice a few slices of ham and toss into your greens, beans or rice, for deliciously flavorful sides that can be enjoyed at your main holiday event.
Serve All Day Long: Consider a holiday ham breakfast, lunch or snack the next day to make the most of your leftovers. HoneyBaked offers several recipes at HoneyBaked.com that fit the bill.
Save for the Future: Save the bone from your holiday ham to use with a pre-made soup mix – such as mixed bean, white bean or split pea (available at your local HoneyBaked store). You can enjoy your refrigerated leftover ham for up to seven days after you bring it home, or you can also freeze your leftover ham for up to two months and use as desired (visit HoneyBaked.com for leftover recipe ideas).
