I have converted the recipe from the following site.


If the curds do not separate, add more lemon juice. I needed to use more lemon juice than the original recipe stated.


Don't throw the whey out. You can use it instead of buttermilk in baking.

Alternatively, dilute it with water and use it to water your plants.
