What 3 ingredients are needed to make a stock?

The basic ratio I use for making stock is 4:1 1/2:1/2:1/2. That’s 4 pounds of bones and meat, 1 1/2 pounds of onions, and 1/2 pounds each of carrots and celery. This ratio works for beef, chicken, turkey, ham/pork, veal, whatever the meat is and makes about 2 quarts of stock. The quantities needn’t be at all precise.
