Adding acid to cream sauce

annb | Jan 23, 2007 11:44 AM

I tried adding some lemon juice (half a lemon) into my creamy pasta sauce (butter, heavy cream, etc.) and it all separated and curdled. Is it because I added too much lemon juice? Or that I'm supposed to add in the lemon juice after taking the cream off heat? Thanks!!
