Before you start
For good results, use only locally-grown, sun-ripened field tomatoes.

- Wash the tomatoes and wipe dry. Cut them in half crosswise and remove the seeds.
- Heat about one tablespoon of oil in a pan. Place the tomatoes into the pan, cut side up and cook over high heat about 3-4 min, until the tomatoes start to darken. Turn them and cook an additonal 3-4 min over low heat.
- Place the tomatoes in an ovenproof dish, cut side up. Add salt and pepper. Distribute the remaining oil, sugar, and Parsley and Garlic base to each half-tomato.
- Bake in the middle of the oven about 1 hour until the tomatoes are tender and caramelized. Serve hot, luke-warm or at room temperature.
