Hoshi-kaibashira dried scallops

Large (1"+) dried scallops are available at Chinese herbal medicine stores.
Small dried scallops are available at Chinese/Asian grocery stores.
Soak in water overnight (or microwave if in a hurry) to up to a few days before use.

Soaked dried scallops kept in the refrigerator come in handy as an extra ingredient and soup stock for many dishes. The liquid can be very salty and often little additional salt is needed for dishes.
