Hello, my name is Jeff Robinson. I'm the chef for St. Martins Place located in Dallas at 2643 Martin Luther King, Dallas, Texas. Today, we're going to talk about how to freeze summer squash. First of all what you want to do is make sure that it is cooked squash or sliced squash. You want to add some oil to it and I'll tell you why. I'll tell you the reason why, because squash holds water. What we're going to do is grab a Ziploc bag, place our squash inside of a Ziploc bag. Okay, you want to remove out excess of air. So kind of squeeze the bag. Give it a good twist. You can see it's beginning to tighten up, just like that. Take your bag and flip it inside out. What it does, it acts as a tie. And you can actually seal this up this way. And this is how you store and freeze summer squash.
