I love summer squash and no matter how many I have, freezing summer squash is so easy.   It’s quick and easy and ready to cook up at any time.  All you need is squash, a knife for slicing, a baking pan and a freezer bag.

I wash the squash and cut in thin slices. Next I lay the squash slices on a baking pan and freeze for about 30 minutes.

They will be frozen individually and I put in a freezer storage bag. Make sure to date the bag so you use the oldest dates first.

I love to fry up the squash, sometimes I have just squash, other times I add peppers and onions to the mix.  This is such a quick and easy way to fill your freezer and a delicious and filling meal.

    Nice tutorial!

  3. Martha says:

    I like all squash but summer squash is my favorite. I’m so glad I have a big freezer so I can stock up for the winter. Stir fry makes such a quick, easy, filling and inexpensive meal. Thanks for stopping by Jeanine.

  4. Martha says:

    Thanks Savvy Age. It’s such an easy process and since I don’t have a lot of extra time, I can prepare this while I’m making dinner. Hoping for an even bigger garden next year!

    How long can you freeze squash for?
    I love yellow squash it is my favorite type of squash.

  6. Cindy says:

    Nice! Great advice!! I like to freeze my zucchini…in the form of zucchini bread!! 😉

  7. Martha says:

    I have kept it frozen for up to 6 – 8 months Sandy. You can also blanch the squash after slicing and that can kept up to a year. The way I prepare it for freezing, it’s not mushy when I cook it. Yellow squash is my favorite too!

  8. Martha says:

    Oh I remember when my grandmother would make zucchini bread! Our freezer was loaded all winter long! Thanks for stopping by Cindy.
