Sure it is, just make a small batch and add some: black pepper, cinnamon, bay leaves, onion, carrot, fennel and salt. Put them in a slow-cooker for about 24hrs and you'll have every bit of taste and nutrients from them.
I have 3 small lamb chops (probably 6 ounces of meat total), and am wondering if I can do anything with the bones. I cooked them in a cast iron pan on the stove. I usually save up chicken bones, but fill a gallon freezer bag before I make stock.
Is it worth trying to make a little bit of broth from 3 lamb chop bones?

Just use a small pot and make soup from it one night. Adding onions, carrots, celery, and fresh herbs makes it delicious. One thing I made with lamb broth recently was avocado soup. I heated up the broth and put it in the blender with one ripe avocado and two egg yolks (and salt!). So so so very good.
Thanks for the advice! I ended up making broth with the lamb bones, onion skins, carrot and celery ends, and a little piece of cinnamon stick. Then I picked the leftover meat off and cooked the meat and broth with carrots, onions, kale, garlic, and rosemary, and used powdered dehydrated mushrooms and eggplant to thicken it up like a stew. It was delicious and made about 3 servings!
I was surprised at how much I liked the lamb- I recently started eating primal after years of being vegetarian, and was mostly eating chicken, salmon, and beef/bison steak. Lamb might be my gateway into other types of meat. Today I was feeling adventurous and picked up a piece of beef shank!
