Squashes (Recipes and Storing)

I just harvested all my squashes. Does anyone have a tried and tested method of keeping them? Is a frost free garage okay or a greenhouse with some straw as protection against frost? Does anyone have some good recipes for using squashes?


  1. We left a butternut squash in a veg rack in the garage for over a year and it was fine. It's cool, dark and frost-free in there.
    I was quite amazed as it had some damage to the skin and I thought it would be rotten. Isn't nature wonderful?

  2. It really is wonderful John - thanks for taking the time to make a comment!
