    Hey Red!

    I've never had much luck freezing raw squash, it always comes out watery and limp.

    Hopefully someone will have a better way!

    I was thinking of freezing it for later use..for something like zucchini bread or something....
    Not sure if that would work though...

    Ive shredded zucchini and frozen it. I use it for zucchini bread and sautee it with onions and garlic. It is not crispy though.

    I drained mine for what seemed like forever, then used it in a casserole. It was a puddle. The ducks didn't even like it. [​IMG]

    Shred it, squeeze out as much "water" as you can, and freeze in baggies for your fav bread portions (usually 2 cups).

    DH doesn't like actual zucchini, but he like bread, so I just store it like this for when I feel like making bread [​IMG] Not good frozen for much else, but it does still does make good bread.

    Agreed. About the only way to use frozen zucchini is to pre-shred it into 2-cup portions for use in bread or other like recipe.
