Oatmeal has a long tradition in the state of Vermont which originated with the Scottish settlement in the state.  Although there were many variations, most oatmeal recipes began with steel cut oats.  The oats were soaked overnight in cold water, salt and maple syrup.  Early the next morning, the cook added ground nutmeg, ground cinnamon and, if desired, ground ginger.  The pot was then placed over heat and cooked for approximately 90 minutes. It was then served with cream, milk or butter.

Vermont leads the United States in per capita consumption of cooked oatmeal cereal.

The Quaker Man is one of the oldest advertising mascots in America.  He was registered by the Quaker Oats company as the first trademark for a breakfast cereal in 1877.
