milk in large saucepan over medium heat until warm--do not boil. Combine
beaten eggs, buttermilk, salt, and sugar. Slowly add to milk, stirring
constantly. Cover with lid, adjust heat to low, simmering for a few
minutes. Stir occasionally, being careful to prevent sticking to the
bottom of pan. Remove the lid and watch carefully for the curds (cheese)
and whey to separate. The liquid (whey) turns from cloudy to clear. Add
the chopped herbs, if desired, as you see the liquid become clear. Place
molds on tray. Immediately, using a slotted spoon, transfer the curds
lightly into the molds. Do not pour to drain or the cheese will be solid
in texture. Cool until all liquid is drained, approx. 30 minutes. Unmold
cheese onto presentation plates. Chill and garnish. Serve with breads,
honey, fruits, etc.
