I'm surprised anyone finds a difference in taste between the long cook oats and quick oats. It is basically the same beast, one is just cut up into smaller pieces than the other, to expediate the cooking.
Personally, I buy organic rolled oats in the 50 pound bag. And the current bag we are eating out of is a particulary cooking resistant product. Usually I cook it for 5 minutes in the microwave. But five minutes of cooking these babies produced no results. So I am leaving the food processor out on the counter this winter, and giving the daily ration of oats a buzz in it, before cooking breakfast. In effect, I am making my own instant oats. And even cooking the buzzed oats for 5 minutes in the microwave produces a chewy gruel.
