What does it mean if curds form in your ricotta before adding lemon juice?
I am in the process of making ricotta right now using whole milk. I am heating it and it is around 120 degrees right now and it has started forming curds even before I have added the acid. Does that mean that my milk was sour? If so, can I just omit the lemon juice and still come up with a nice ricotta?
