    4. Once boiling, place the dish into the oven and cook for two hours
    5. Remove the dish from the oven and add the chorizo, onion, carrots, honey to taste, if using, and the remaining rosemary, then return to the oven and cook for another hour, or until the meat is tender and falling off the bone.
    6. Remove the meat and vegetables with a slotted spoon and keep warm.
