"Unfortunately, several sentences are missing in the recipe. After you've cut the carrots in 1/2 in. wide strips, the recipe should read: "Stack two strips together; loosely tie into a knot. Repeat to make five more carrot knots. Set knots and remaining strips aside. Cut zucchini ends at an angle. Using the peeler, peel zucchini into thin strips; cut each 1/2 in. wide." Recipe continues as printed at this point.We apologize for the inconvenience and the recipe will be corrected here soon.Taste of Home Test Kitchen"

"I thought the recipe looked interesting, but there must be some trick to tying the knots that you forgot to share."

"there are no carrot directions for the Knots. Hope someone from Taste of Home reads the comments. My guess is you tie them in knots, guess we have to experiment"
