Drizzle with virgin olive oil, sprinkle with fresh thyme, kosher salt, fresh black pepper and sugar and bake in a preheated 250'F oven until the tomatoes shrink, about 4 1/2 hours. Store in olive oil.

Top vegetables with pork in one layer. From the bottom, roll the sandwich tightly and evenly toward the top. Press the empty margin firmly against the roll to seal the sandwich.
  5. Wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate at least 30 minutes so the roll is firm enough to cut.
