Dried plums, a childhood favorite!

Borrowing the French word for plum, we call these prunes in English. Just FYI!

My mom-in-law uses them in cooking, especially a delicious chicken dish.

Yeah, mine too, but she adds them to pork roasts. Must be an old world thing, eh, Karl?  8)

I know they're used a bit in old-school French cooking.

I believe it is  dim sum.

I am really hungry, I don't know what to eat for lunch, but I'll probably go for some rice &cannelini beans

Yes, it is dim sum but it's a little off the beaten cart path  :D.  It's called Xiao Long Bao.  They are soup dumplings:  contained in each little dumpling is a little bit of broth.  From what I understand most of the dim sum served in the US is prepared by Cantonese dim sum chefs and these are a Shanghai specialty,  hence the reason they are not usually found in 'traditional' dim sum houses in the US.

Yes, the dimsums I have had come from a broth, they are of course moist inside, but without broth inside them. Perhaps there are places in Chinatown who do it like this, but with me the only dimsum option is tofu/spinach so broth or no broth nothing very appealing to me anyway.

Dim Sum - introduced to that food back in the late '70s in San Francisco - wife is still a great fan, but my interest has waivered - guess I find much of it just 'too starchy' in many places; BUT, if Dim Sum is being served at an excellent restaurant & well done, then I certainly enjoy the experience; I like 'lightness', interesting variety, and a little more 'refined' atmosphere than usually present at many of these eateries. 

One of my favorite places was Harbor Village Restaurant in the financial district in San Fran; yes, a little more expensive, but I adored the experience (including the baby octupus!) - SHOCKED - click on the name of the place - IT HAS CLOSED!  I used to find a medical meeting out there every 2-3 years, and often would dine at that restaurant (dim sum for lunch or great fresh fish steamed for dinner; well, no more) -  :'(

There will never be another era like the Golden Age of Hollywood.  We didn't know how to blow up buildings then so we had no choice but to tell great stories with great characters.-Ben Mankiewicz
