Easy easy! ;-)
I do it all the time...
I rinse them in a screen strainer to get all the goo off, then leave
them in the screen strainer to dry really well. They will dry well
usually in about 2 days.
Put them into a plain paper mailing envelope and label it, then put them
into a large glass jar. The jar helps keep the weevils out of them.

I had some super Yellow butterstick squash in early summer. I let 2
of them grow to about 3 feet long for seed. I kept them in my kitchen
until about Sept 15 and one of them was getting a little soft. I
brought it out side and cut it open....It had been in my kitchen for
about 6 weeks. I live close to St. Louis Mo. Zone 5-6... Anyway..
A lot of the seeds inside the belly of the beast had started
germenating...with one inch sprouts. The squash had not rotted
through or even close. I planted 4 of these germenating seeds in the
ground and within 2 days ...boom. After 2 weeks these guys were
growing fast but then the soil temp and night temp started going down
and they stalled. I potted 'em up and brought 'em inside.
Wow...they started to grow female flowers and male flowers even though
they were 6 inches across and maybe 8 leaves....Anyway this is my
first post on this group. Hope I didn't get carried away. My Fall
garden has Lettuce, Radishes turnips Brocchili Cauliflower and B
sprouts and cabbage. Thanks Joe Mc
You may try pollinating the flowers with a cotton swab. You never
know, they may produce during the winter if the pots are big enough and
the plants well fed. Otherwise, just try and keep them alive and plant
established plants in the spring.
