A question about a recipe: Roasted Acorn Squash with Maple and Red Pepper Flakes

I have a question about the recipe "Roasted Acorn Squash with Maple and Red Pepper Flakes" from Kendra Vaculin. Do you keep the skin on the acorn squash? If so can you eat it?

I decided to keep the skin on as well. It was a delicious dinner with a mixed greens side salad. Thank you for your response! I will keep this recipe in my arsenal.

I prepared acorn squash for Thanksgiving 2014 and left the skin on, and it was edible! I ended up cooking the squash, cut into 1/2 inch wedges, on the grill in foil packets (power failure + electric oven = gotta improvise!). The skin seemed to help the wedges hold their shape.
