Place carrots and water in a large skillet; bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium; simmer, stirring occasionally, until the carrots are tender when pierced with a fork, about 10 minutes. Drain the carrots and return to the pan.Advertisement
Add butter, brown sugar, apple juice, thyme, salt and pepper to the carrots in the pan. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring often, until the butter melts and the liquid thickens and coats the carrots, 2 to 3 minutes. Serve hot.
