These are spectacular in any pasta dish or salad and are like candy to eat in on their own.

Serves 4 – 6 but can easily be increased

16 cherry or small tomatoes, halved
2 tbsp maple syrup
2 tbsp olive oil
3 sprigs fresh thyme, stemmed
2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
Kosher salt and ground black pepper, to taste

Preheat your oven to 250 F
Arrange the tomato halves cut side up on an aluminum foil-lined baking sheet.
Whisk together the syrup, oil, thyme and salt and pepper in a bowl and then drizzle over the tomatoes.
Bake until the tomatoes are half dried and concentrated, about 3 to 4  hours, depending on how concentrated you like them.
