I have a pile of acorn squash that was harvested last Fall. Last night I cooked/mashed enough to fill 3 pint jars, probably 6 squash total. Doing a couple more loads tonight. Might have it all done Thursday night.

I've never been into squash, but just read you can store them up to 6mths...no freezing or refrigeration. I didn't know they'd hold up so long.

I have a friend that stores squash in his freezer cut into 1" thick slices. He also layers beets in the bottom of his freezer. Says they keep indefinitely that way and don't taste funny when cooked.

Yep, the acorn squash will keep that long if you have a cool (not cold) basement or cellar to store it in, which I don't. Just had it on a shelf in the garage.

I like putting some butter, cinnamon, and a bit of nutmeg on it. Very good!

I like acorn squash better than yellow or zuchini squash.

Bout the only way I can tolerate squash. Butter and brown sugar. I don't care for zucchini or yellow either.
