Egg Cheese

  Heat 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.

1 cup buttermilk
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar
