Usually what you can porridge is what we mean...up until the past 10 years
or so all you ever saw in the grocery stores was rolled oats...usually
Quaker.  Usually eaten for breakfast with sugar, milk and other
accouterments (brown sugar, raisins, cinnamon, honey, etc.). More recently
we've been able to get steel cut oats...first the Irish type, then American
companies started making the steel cut oats as well...cf. Bob's Red Mill.
