It's possible, but I would doubt it. The usual term
for these would be duerre Pflaumen or Doerrpflaumen,
and Rumpoldt makes reference to dried fruit elsewhere
(can't recall plums, but apples definitely). Raisins
come in a wide variety of shapes, shades and sizes. A
good cook might well include in his instructions which
kind to use (to this day, a really good food retailer
in Germany will be able to sell you regular raisins
(Rosinen), currants (Korinthen) and white raisins
