Depending on the size of your carrots, cut them in half lengthwise, and possibly in half or thirds width-wise. You want your carrot pieces to be roughly uniform in size so they all cook at about the same rate.
Heat oil in a heavy, oven proof skillet. Either cast-iron or a dutch oven should work well.
Once the oil is nice and hot add carrots, sauteing for 4-6 minutes until they begin to brown.
Don't over-stir. The longer they're touching the bottom of the skillet, the quicker they will brown.
Sprinkle with thyme and salt.
Pour maple syrup over the top and give the carrots a quick stir.
Place the pan in a 400 degree oven and roast for 8-9 minutes.
