  • Wash the fresh squash well to remove any dirt that may be clinging to the skin.
  • Drain in a colander or gently pat dry with a soft towel or paper towel.
  • Slice the squash into circles or chunks.
  • Place the squash in a freezer bag and remove as much air as possible.
  • Flatten the bag and place on a cookie sheet in the freezer.
  • Once the squash is frozen solid you can remove the cookie sheet and store as you would any other bagged frozen vegetables.
  • Add sliced onions and minced garlic to the bag if desired.
