Preheat the oven to 275 degrees F.

Arrange the tomatoes on a sheet pan, cut sides up, in a single layer.
Drizzle with 1/4 cup of olive oil and the balsamic vinegar.
Sprinkle with the garlic, sugar, 1 1/2 teaspoons salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper.
Roast for 2 hours until the tomatoes are concentrated and begin to caramelize.
Allow the tomatoes to cool to room temperature.

You can make a few of these or a lot of these. I have never tried freezing them, but they last for a week or two and are great on pasta, pizzas, salads, bruschetta, eggs, by themselves. When plum tomatoes are on sale, I take advantage and make these.
