Put the carrots in a large skillet with the stock, 1/4 cup orange juice from the orange you have zested, 1 Tablespoon of maple syrup and salt. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat.
Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the carrots are just tender, approximately 8-10 minutes for whole carrots.

Add the rest of the maple syrup and zest of the orange. Continue cooking until the sauce thickens.
