They are the same as in the nursery rhyme, Pease pudding hot, pease pudding cold, pease pudding in the pot, nine day's old. Pease Pudding Hot rhyme
My father who was born in Macclesfield, Cheshire, always called faggots "savoury ducks".

If they are known in America I would imagine that they are not called faggots

It is in this country a very derogatory remark for a gay man. It is probably one of the most nastiest words you could hurl at a gay man. We can equate it to using the "N" word for a black man.

Very politely and succinctly put Addie. I can think of no instance where I have ever heard it used in a nice manner. I however, didn't know faggots were a food. I always thought they were a bundle of sticks or wood tied up and remind me of Charles Dickens type stories.

This must be an example of the word being used in a nice way ,it's a comfort food . Never heard of the reference to sticks or wood tied up though ?

I think savoury ducks are different , do they use sausage meat ?

If the stick and wood come from the era of Charles Dickens, I wasn't around then. I was born a couple of days too late. But I have heard the word "fag" used in English movies. It has always been used in reference to a cigarette.
