I typically throw in whatever I have laying around but I like using celery tops, parsley stems, a few black peppercorns and a bay leaf for lighter stocks(shrimp and chicken) and roasted mirepoix for darker ones like duck and beef. The key is roasting your bones beforehand.

Celery, onion, carrots, bay leaf, garlic powder, a bit of black pepper, and whatever shells, bones, etc.

I try to keep it pretty simple because I make a big batch and freeze it. And I want to be able to adjust it for whatever I decide to use it for later.

bones/shells/veggie scraps and water. That's it. No seasonings in my stocks.

Sometimes, it depends on in what dish I will be using the stock.

For shrimp stock, I generally use only the shells.

For chicken, it depends on the dish. I don't normally use bay leaves unless the dish I'm making calls for them. I use onion, celery, a few peppercorns and parsley stems. Sometimes, just the bones.

For beef, pretty much the same.

For ham, I sometimes use some herbs and red wine. Ham stocks are so darn good.

For pork, I don't make this much. I should, though, for pork gravy.

Chicken carcass, giblets minus liver (I love liver but don't use it to make stock), onion, celery, carrot, garlic, GINGER, whole peppercorns, bay leaf, stems from parsley or cilantro if I have them, otherwise coriander seeds.

What sets my stock apart from others is the fresh ginger.

I don't do vegetable or lamb stocks, but do all the others and a few more.

Shrimp stock is just shells, heads and cover with water and allow to cook down for a little more than an hour, but not much longer. I find they don't taste as good if cooked longer.

Beef stocks will find me seasoning and browning the bones in my oven prior to putting them in a pot, cover with water and add onion, celery, garlic, parsley, some salt and pepper and cook that down for several hours. Pretty much the same with my chicken, duck or turkey stocks except I don't brown the bones in the oven first.

My fowl stocks and beef stocks are cooked down and refrigerated overnight so any oil comes to the top to be removed and what's left is basically a dense stock that actually gels and sets like Jello. I'll put that in quart freezer bags to use as needed.

I also save oyster liquor when I shuck fresh oysters to use in gumbos and seafood dishes.
