How do you freeze butternut squash?

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.

How do you freeze butternut squash? Can it be frozen in the raw form?
By Dorothy Stella from Rochester, NY
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.
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.
I was given a bunch of butternut squash. Can I freeze it?
I freeze ours. I do blanch it first (after cutting it into chunks)
