Quick Answer

Cooked spaghetti squash does freeze well. After cooking the squash, cut it in half lengthwise, remove the seeds and use a fork to rake through the pulp to separate it into spaghetti-like strands. To keep spaghetti squash leftovers for later use, place it in a plastic container or resealable freezer bag, sealing the container and placing it into the freezer.

There are many different ways to cook squash, such as baking, steaming, in a slow cooker, boiling or using a microwave. Each method will require different cooking times. For example, if baking spaghetti squash, it can take about an hour to cook the squash at a temperature of 375 degrees Fahrenheit.

When buying squash, it is a good idea to make sure it is firm and has a weight of about four pounds. This yields about 5 cups of spaghetti squash.

    Can you freeze popcorn?

    A:

    Both popped and unpopped popcorn can be frozen, but it can affect the quality. Unpopped popcorn that has been frozen does not pop as well, and frozen popped popcorn that was opened becomes dry and stale. Popped popcorn in an airtight sealed bag should freeze fine.
