Can someone tell me how to freeze fresh squash? I think you just cut it up and freeze it but not sure. Thanks.

You can grate zucchini, squeeze out juice, freeze by recipe amounts to use in zucchini bread. Or go ahead and cook the bread and then freeze. It freezes very well. Also, either yellow or zucchini frozen this way can be used in patties/pancakes. I find freezing sliced squash is kind of rubbery but freezing the cooked squash is better. (05/07/2008)
Indeed blanch. Cut the squash up into rounds. Boil water, then put squash in for 5 minutes. drain and cool to room temperature. Then put it into a zip lock frozen baggie. I probably wouldn't salt ahead because salt takes the liquid out and you do want them moist. I have a bunch of squash plants growing, its what I intend to do. Sugar would be good to add in the water as Grammer said. (05/07/2008)
If you put your blanched squash pieces on a cookie sheet and freeze them they will be individually frozen and you can take out as much as you want without having to thaw the whole bag. (05/07/2008)
Cut your squash to desired sizes. Lay evenly on a cookie sheet and place in freezer for an hour. Once they are frozen. then transfer to your freezer bags for future use. This works for breaded or non breaded squash. (05/08/2008)
I want to know how to bread squash and then freeze it for frying. (06/15/2008)
