Under what conditions does one say a beracha upon tasting food which one is cooking? For some foods there may be a point during cooking, before which, the food would be considered inedible e.g. pasta, rice, potatoes, aubergine, etc.
If there is a safek as to whether the food is cooked through, would it be considered a safek beracha and therefore we would be lenient not to say a beracha?
(I am only asking about those things which would be considered inedible prior to cooking).
