I chunk mine, then blanch it. Drain and pat dry, then put into zip lock bags and freeze.

Blanch it, let it dry, and freeze it flat.

If I was going to freeze butternut squash I would cook it first by any method. The problem with this is that you have to then use it in soups or puree'd.


Why freeze it at all? Keep the whole squash in a cool dark dry spot and cut it open when you want to use it.

You should bake first but freezing without precooking is not a good idea. :-( Cut in half and place cut side down on baking sheet. Cook until tender. Scrape pulp from rind and mash or remove rind and cube.
