    We had put squash in our barn and forgot to cover it so now it is frozen. I am just wondering if the squash is still okay to eat. We cut one in half and you can tell it has been frozen. Should we just throw away? Appreciate someone answering if this has happened to them and did you eat it.[/b]

    It won't be very good in any preparation which calls for chunks or slices (the frozen bits will be mushy), but it will be fine if you puree it. Cut it into chunks, roast it, slice away the skin, and puree it in a food processor or blender.

    What variety of squash? Most winter squashes can be frozen raw, so they should be fine to use after peeling and cooking. It's not going to be a safety issue unless it has been thawed for awhile, but if it's cooked up immediately after thawing it should be fine. Texture might be not so good, so I agree a puree might be the best application.

    It was the acorn squash, thanks everyone for the response. We will probably puree it then.

    I often keep in freezer shredded pumpkin in small plastic bags.
