Halacha - grape ices
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question: I make my own mini ices by pouring pure grape juice into ice cube trays and freezing it. I do not add any other ingred. to the grape juice. Would the correct bracha be borei pre hagofen or shehakol on these 'ices'?
Answer:

There is a huge machlokes in the Poskim regarding exactly this issue if grape juice only maintains its special status as a liquid or even when hardened. Therefore, it would be ideal to make borei pri hagafen on liquid grape juice and shehakol on something else before eating the ices. In the likelihood that this is not practical, one should say shehakol.
