  • Freezing Acorn Squash
    I bought several Acorn Squah when they were on sale for 25 cents a pound. I was wondering if they could be frozen and how do you do it?

    Would rather leave them whole or cut in half instead of peeling and chopping them.

    Any help appreciated,
    Thanks, Marge

    Cut in half & cook, bake or steam, until flesh is tender. Drain well & remove flesh from the shell. Mash & freeze in freezer bags.

    Quoted from a cooking site.


    "Before freezing, acorn squash must be cooked. Cook squash and remove the pulp from the skin. You can leave it in chunks or mash it. Place in airtight containers and freeze ten to twelve months at 0 degrees "

    I've frozen them after baking, and they've done fine.

    Thanks for all the responses. I will try these. Hopefully I'll enjoy the squash long after the season is over.
