1) Cut your butternut squash in half, lengthwise, scoop out seeds and place meat side down in a baking dish filled with about 1/2 inch of water. Bake on 400 for 45 min to an hour or until just soft.
2) Allow to cool, peel away skins and dice into cubes.
3) Lay the cubes on a baking or cookie pan and place in the freezer for about an hour or two. If you have a small freezer you will have to do this in batches.
4) Remove from pan, put into freezer bags and voila - your own cubed squash! Ready for you anytime you need it :)
