You can freeze it but it will be mushy when you unthaw it. (04/20/2009)

I freeze zucchini for zucchini bread, cakes etc. I shred it with my food processor, measure it into 2 cups (which is what my recipe calls for) and place in freezer bag, squeeze out the extra air. Upon thawing, I put it (frozen zucchini)into a colander, let the extra water drain, give it an extra squeeze and then continue with recipe. This works out great!! As for yellow squash - don't know - our family doesn't prefer. Hope this helped (04/22/2009)

If you want to freeze squash or zucchini it is best to prepare them the way you would eat them then freeze them. I do this every year and have no problem, but if you freeze them without cooking them it does not turn out well. Always cook them first! (04/22/2009)

I do like hawkeye, cook it first but I've found that I must really just get it warm, not throughly cooked because when it thaws, if it's fully cooked it will be mushy. Just thaw and finish cooking for a couple of minutes. (04/22/2009)

Last year I sliced my yellow squash and then layed in layers of wax paper, then froze, then I would vacum seal in what ever size you want. I always fry mine, so I get everything ready before ,then dip and roll. deep fry while frozen, not as good as fresh but still has good flavor. (04/22/2009)

I always bake my yellow winter squash before freezing. No thawing problems. Zuchini I shred and then freeze. Thaw in fridge, drain off the fluid before using. This is juice, which is mostly water, so unless you are making soup, discard. (04/24/2009)

You can freeze yellow squash, if you cut them and blanch them in water this does not turn out well but if you blanch then in oil (fry) for just a bit about 30 sec per side they retain there flavor. The thawed product is much better this way and have a more attractive look. Since squash is mostly water anyway the blanching in water method will yield a poor product when you go to cook them. Those blanched in oil can be stewed or used in a casserole without any problem with good results. (06/22/2009)
