Where to buy Dried Plums (red plums, not black prunes) in L.A. area?

lh o | Dec 15, 201402:45 PM     4

Looking to make sugarplums this Christmas. Found a recipe that suggested using dried figs if one could not find dried plums. . . I tried it with figs, tastes good, but figgy. Want plums. The recipe was specific about NOT substituting with prunes, which are black and slimy and called "dried plums" for PR purposes. I'm looking for plums that are probably reddish in color, & looks similar to apricots in shape/texture, like half-plums.

Thank you !

P.S.- Not looking for Chinese dried salted plums- like li hing mui, not Japanese plums like ume.
