  • Preheat the oven to 120°C, fan 100°C, gas about ½.
  • Line a large baking sheet with baking/parchment paper.
  • Halve the tomatoes. I normally slice from the top to the bottom as they stay more intact.
  • Slice the garlic into fine slices.
  • Place the tomatoes into a mixing bowl with the now sliced garlic and the thyme. Add 3 tablespoons of the oil and season with sea salt and pepper.
  • Toss gently to coat, then arrange the tomatoes, cut-side up, on the lined baking sheets. Sprinkle over any garlic and thyme left in the bowl for added flavour. Don’t want to leave any behind.
  • Place the tray on the middle shelf of the oven for 3 – 3½ hours or until they have reduced in size a lot.
  • Try one and they should be fry to the touch but still juicy in the middle.
  • Place the still warm tomatoes into sterilised Kilner jars and add about half a teaspoon of sherry vinegar into each jat.
  • Gently heat the garlic and thyme oil and pour it over the tomatoes.
  • Make sure the tomatoes are completely covered.
  • Seal the jars and store in a cool dry place for at least a few days before using.
  • These are gorgeous with cheese and a glass of port. (the sherry wine blends superbly)
