Directions:
Preheat your oven to 225°.

Toss cherry tomatoes in a large bowl and drizzle with olive oil, just to coat. Add cloves of garlic. Add sprigs of thyme. Give them a good sprinkling of salt, and a nice grind of pepper.

Pour tomato mixture in a shallow roasting pan, and make sure to keep tomatoes in a single layer. Bake for about 2 or 3 hours, or until the tomato skins are wrinkled and the tomatoes are swollen and juicy.

Serve hot, at room temp, or chilled.

Personal Notes:
Tomato season is alive and well in the heat of summer – get them while they’re local and fresh! Tomatoes are actually a fruit (we eat their seeds), but do well in savory dishes.

For this recipe, tomatoes are slow roasted, which brings out their sweetness. You can toss in any fresh herbs you have around, too. The secret to these little gems is a low oven temp for a long while. They’re great to toss in late at night and just shut the oven off before you go to bed and leave them in.

They are PERFECT for your morning eggs, spread on crostini as an appetizer, or tossed with some pasta for a quick mid-week meal. This is also a great way to ‘preserve’ tomatoes, as they will hold in your fridge for about a week, easily. You can freeze any leftovers……IF you have any!
