I bought cut-up uncooked butternut squash from costco and don't think I will be able to use it for another week. Can I freeze it in it's bag or do I have to cook it first? Thanks!
I cook a couple and freeze the pulp every fall in ziplock bags. I haven't tried freezing uncooked squash.
You might have to cook it first. Just roast it in the oven. I always see cooked frozen butternut squash in the store but never uncooked.
Yes you can freeze it.I finely diced half a butternut squash a couple months ago then pulled it out about a week ago to make risotto with it and it was fine.
You can totally freeze it. I've even seen it sold in the frozen foods section of the grocery store - both pureed and cubed.
I usually buy the frozen cubed one when to use for making roasted vegetables. It tastes fine, but it does tend to get a little mushier than fresh.
