Sorry, Tish. This was so bitter from too much turmeric, that we couldn't eat it. I would recommend cutting the amount in half.

This was good. I can't personally say "FANTASTIC", because I'm not a great fan of acorn squash. Others eating, however, enjoyed(therefore 4 stars). One adjustment (due to travel time to- and from-work) was that this cooked for almost 9 hours. Might've made a difference for previous reviewer's comment on turmeric, as it seemed to work fine with my results. Thanks for the post, Tish!
