Roasted tomatoes

I can't believe I've never made these before.

It transforms hard, tasteless supermarket tomatoes into something that actually tastes like a tomato.

I took a package of roma tomatoes from Costco, and left them out for a couple of days to ripen a bit. (Note: refrigeration will instantly halt the ripening process. If you want your tomatoes, avocados, bananas, whatever, to ripen, leave them out. The minute you put them in the fridge, they'll stop. Even if you take them back out again.)

Cut the tomatoes in half lengthwise and place cut side up on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper. Drizzle the tomatoes very lightly with a little olive oil, and scatter some unpeeled garlic cloves around for good measure. Bake at around 225 for at least three hours. Serve with very good salt.
