Instructions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 300°F.
  2. Toss tomatoes with mustard seeds, sliced garlic, thyme, red pepper flakes, and 1/4 cup oil; arrange on a rimmed baking sheet and season with salt. Bake, stirring once, until tomatoes are blistered, 45 to 50 minutes. Discard thyme and any extra-brown garlic slices.
