Heat the oven to 425˚ F (220˚C). Pour the tomatoes onto two heaving baking sheets or roasting pans; they should fit in a single layer (if not, add a third pan). Add the garlic. Pour a generous layer of olive oil over the tomatoes, enough to that a thin layer of oil pools on the baking sheet. Season generously with salt. Bake until the tomatoes are blistered and deflated and release their juices, 20 to 30 minutes. Remove from the oven, discard the garlic, and let cool. Make sure to save all the oily juices! Store in the fridge for up to 10 days!
