The Beracha on Date Spread, Applesauce, and Purées

The Beracha on Date Spread, Applesauce, and Purées
Day: Sunday
Date: January 3, 2016
Parshat: Va'era
Yalkut Yosef: O"H: 202

Fruits and vegetables that are fried, such as french fries or fried banana slices, retain their original beracha. Baked and boiled fruits, such as baked apples or compote, also retain their original beracha even if they have been chopped into small pieces. However, if the fruit was boiled to the point that it was turned to liquid and the pieces are no longer discernible, the beracha is shehakol. Date spread, pure apple sauce, and purées that don't contain other ingredients all retain their original berachot, even if the fruit or vegetable is no longer recognizable. Likewise, they also retain their original after beracha.
