Need help slow roasting tomatoes with garlic!

vivaldi1 | May 20, 2014 04:31 PM

This is going to perhaps sound amateurish, precisely because it is.

But I want to slow roast some cherry tomatoes cut in half for 2-3 hours on about 220.

Will adding a few garlic cloves in the roasting pan actually improve the flavor/aroma of the tomatoes or will it just improve the aroma of my home while they are cooking?

The only analogy I can think of is that the 'smoke' from a good BBQ obviously changes the flavor of the meat. But that's smoke. Anyways, I tried googling it but couldn't figure out.

I know the best way is to test it, but I'm also curious about the science of how.

Want to stay up to date with this post?
