Don't have to, your word is as good as your bond.

Any inroads into your own bacon factory?

No, more's the pity. Got a project on the go which will tie me up for the next three months.

Not every time but many times Fuji restaurant has ripe tomatoes with their salads.  Produce companies have ripening rooms that are flooded with co2.  I wonder how Fuji does it?  I blanch mine for a minute and skin and seed them with a touch of fresh basil for my salads with bib lettuce.

Big C also has ripe tomatoes, usually in a pack of 4. Brand is varying, Royal Project seems to have tasty ones.
The green ones you can buy in bulk are only good for Som Tum and Yum Thai.
All other purposes forget about them.

They still have the stems on them as I remember. I look for the pear shaped Italian ones and do my thing with them.

Place blanched and seeded tomatoes, onion, oil and vinegar in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Toss gently to combine. Cover. Set aside for 2 hours for flavors to develop.

 

 

Add basil. Toss to combine. Serve.
