Photo: Jean Allsopp
Yield Makes 10 to 12 servings
This recipe, from the Savannah Bee Company, features honeycomb tucked into slices of picnic ham. Purchase honeycomb at, or look for it in jars of raw honey from specialty markets. If unavailable, drizzle about 1/4 cup honey over ham before serving.


  • 1 (8- to 10-pound) bone-in, fully cooked, spiral-cut smoked ham half
  • 1 (11-ounce) honeycomb square
  • 1 tablespoon orange zest (from 1 orange)
  • 1/2 cup chopped dried cranberries
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Rolls or mini croissants

How to Make It

  1. Unwrap ham and place in a roasting pan. Gently separate the slices.

  2. Drizzle 3 tablespoons honey from honeycomb or honey jar over the ham. Bake ham, uncovered, at 325° for 25 minutes.

  3. Remove ham from oven, and transfer to a serving platter. Slice honeycomb into 1/4-inch-thick slices with a sharp knife dipped in hot water. Place slices of honeycomb between slices of ham. Sprinkle with orange zest, cranberries, rosemary, and pepper. Serve with rolls or mini croissants.
