Cut tomatoes in half, lengthwise. Gently squeeze out extra juice. Add tomato halves, cut side up, to rack on parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Sprinkle tomatoes with coarse salt, chopped garlic and dried oregano. Drizzle lightly with balsamic vinegar and olive oil. Dry tomatoes in oven for 8 to 12 hours. The tomatoes should be dried but pliable and chewy like a raisin. Store in fridge for up to 1 week or freeze for up to 1 month.
