What to do with this blue hubbard squash?

I was just given a huge blue hubbard squash. I am the only person in my house that eats squash so I'd like to freeze it in single servings. I was going to cook it then mash it with some s&p and butter. Can I freeze it like this or would I just cook and freeze?

I'd appreciate any suggestions.



I'm just a Dad who loves food and I live in a house full of fussy eaters... it's a challenge!

My Mom used to cut it apart with an axe, bake the pieces and scoop out the squash. She froze it in freezer bags. Those were her favorite type! I don't know if she seasoned it or not before freezing and I can't ask her now. I still laugh to myself at the sight of her attacking that squash!

You can make a "pumpkin" pie with that! Bet'cha won't know the difference.

Prepare it with salt, pepper and butter and freeze it in meal sized portions. Works great!
