Subject:  juice and soup
Message:  Dear Rabbi, As a child yet, in yeshivah ketanah, we were taught the blessing on vegetable soup was admah, and juice shehakol--though i always wondered why the prodcut withwater added wasnt shehakol, and juice which is only ,hopefully, what is squeezed out of let us say an orange, is not haetz.

anyway, what do you think the correct broches are on soup and fruit, and what about if there is otherstuff in them, for example

1.orange juice with bits of orange
2. split pea soup with peas in it
3. split pea soup with crackers,
4. with franfurter pieces.
etc i dont want to go on,
is there a general klal when pieces of whatever float in the liquid?
thank you jh
Reply:  1) with or without= Ha'Etz
2) Ha'Adamah
3) complicated.
4) We'll try to get the Berachah (blessing) laws up soon.
