Method: 
Steam carrots over boiling water until just tender, about 5 to 10 minutes. Set aside.

Add the oil and syrup to a medium skillet and heat over medium-high heat. Add the carrots and cook until the carrots are heated through and beginning to lightly brown, about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in nutmeg and cinnamon.
