REMINDER REGARDING DRIED FRUITS

February 9, 2017, - From the Hakhel Organization:
With the growing popularity of dried fruits (and the increased number of Heimeshe brand dried fruits), we remind our readers to exercise caution as to the appropriate bracha over the particular dried fruit. For instance, dried guava may literally be the product of pureed guava, in which case the bracha would be a Shehakol -- just as in fruit leather. Similarly, dried fruit mixtures such as ‘kiwi/pineapple’ slices which appear green and are in larger slices than the size of a kiwi may very likely constitute a bracha of Shehakol. Let the proper bracha reciter beware!
Hakhel Note: If one is not sure, he should make the possible brachos that are necessary on other foods, with the dried fruit in mind--or simply not eat the dried fruit until he determines what the bracha is.

Ed. note: Information on dried fruits and nuts is here.

February 17, 2017 - from a reader's question to the OK: Klein's Naturals Dried Guava is slices and the bracha is ha'eitz.
