Until sugar cane was introduced in the
1800s, maple sap was used as a sweetener component for consumption, almost all
production coming from Vermont.
The sugar comes from the sap of this
tree, which is treated in large ovens to make a multitude of sugary compounds
and preparations, in addition to the aforementioned sugar.
this State is famous in the country for the large-scale production of sugar,
maple syrup and a sweet made from its leaves, which is why it has been used as a
representative design of the State.
"Camel's Hump Mountain" is the third
highest mountain in the State, belongs to the "Green Mountain" mountain system
and is considered one of the oldest mountains on earth.
The "Green Mountains" are considered a
symbol that enjoys much sympathy among the inhabitants of Vermont.
