Just helped my mother pick veggies in her garden.  There's about 100 large summer squashes.  Any tips for freezing it?  My step-father says it doesn't freeze well.  She also has a lot of eggplant.  I can't do any cooking for a few days because I have a ton left to do with moving and have to go back down to Maryland.  But early next week I can make a couple of pans of eggplant/squast parmesan and freeze that.  But I'm thinking if I cube some squash and freeze it, it should be ok for soups right?

I think you might get more answers in CMT or Cooking.

I'm not a big fan of squash Mary, but I've successfully frozen pumpkin & sweet potatoes.  Since I mostly use them for pies, I cook, mash, then freeze in zip lock baggies of 2 Cups each.  Works great!

My Mother grates it, then freezes it.  Works great if you are going to be cooking with it, such as zucchini bread or pumpkin bread.
