Yes, many cooks do this, including myself. Leftover onion, celery,
carrot, leeks, mushroom stems, etc. end up in a gallon ziplock in the
freezer. It doesn’t even matter if there are a few bits of dirt or
sand since the stock will get strained through cloth/china cap at the
I will either make a vegetable stock or — more frequently — make a
chicken stock with these frozen veggies. If you’re making a darker
stock, the occasional tomato is okay.
Most experienced cooks will use the freezer quite well for maximum
efficiency of leftovers (both raw ingredients as well as cooked items)
