Hey all do I really need 6 lbs. of bones to make stock? I usually use between 1 -2 lbs.!

Hey guys good morning/evening well I am a huge proponent of making and consuming stocks, I believe the nutritional benefits they give us are unmatched by anything else!

I always made my stocks with maybe 4-5-6 bones, totalling around 1-2 lbs., however I have read many recipes, namely Emeril for example and other websites', where they ask for 6lbs.!!!!!

In my opinion it is not the quantity of the bones, it is only important that you simmer for many many hours and include lots of root vegetables/herbs/spices and such . .

My stocks taste great however I wanted to make sure that I am getting the best benefit out of these stocks and would hate to know that I will never get a nutrient rich stock with less than 6lbs!

Ok thank you have a nice day :)
