Candied Lamb Shoulder

A perfect recipe for a cold and rainy autumn day when all you want to do is just sit at home, waiting for a nice lunch or dinner. The smell of the slow cooking meat will fill the air and you can cozy up with some good book. Choose organic meat and veggies, accompany with roasted sweet potatoes. The best utensil for this recipe would be a cast iron casserole.
