Intensify the flavor of ripe plum tomatoes with a slow-and-low roast in the oven.



  1. Preheat the oven to 250 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment or foil.
  2. Arrange the tomatoes, cut side-up, in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle with 1 teaspoon salt and scatter with the thyme sprigs. Bake until the tomatoes are slightly shriveled but still plump, about 5 hours.
  3. Use the roasted tomatoes right away or layer with fresh thyme sprigs in a resealable container and cover with oil. Refrigerate for up to 2 weeks.
