Curious about your source for the idea that adding ginger and lemon juice will preserve the buns. How did know how much to add? How much longer do you think they'll last?
I read somewhere, but now I don’t remember where, that ascorbic acid aka vitamin c, can prolong the shelf life of homemade bread by a few days. I didn’t have any, but I did have a lemon . Same with ginger, although I think I read ground ginger. I do have some, but thought the grated fresh might add an interesting note to the bread. As for amounts, just a little of each, lol. Less than a tbsp of ginger, and just a squeeze of lemon

Breads enriched with eggs and dairy last longer than breads made of only flour, water, yeast and salt. Ascorbic and citric acids have preservative properties, but a minimum amount is needed for it to work. I have no idea what that is.

I'm glad you enjoyed those mozz bites, but I hope you do end up securing a deal with that "potential" customer. Good luck!

A crisp Pinot Grigio is lovely with lightly fried tempura

Ice cold beer, and I mean ice cold, is my beverage of choice for tempura. And some hiyazake (chilled sake).
