A BIT MORE
1. Fish which is edible after being salted is permitted if it was cooked by a Nochri.
2. According to this version, small fish cooked by a Nochri are permitted since they are fit to be served at a king's table.
3. The Nochri did not intend to cook the animal, but rather to singe it in order to make it easier to remove the hair. Although the very tender ear was cooked in the process, it is permitted.
4. The Nochri did not intend to cook the peg, only to soften it. Although the pumpkin was cooked in the process, it is permitted.
5. However, if the food was cooled to less than k'Ma'achal Ben Derusai and a Nochri cooked it further, it is forbidden.
6. It would have cooked completely without the intervention of the Nochri. Although the cooking was accelerated by the Nochri, it is permitted.
7. This is based on a Kal va'Chomer. If the cooking which was completed by a Nochri is permitted, then the cooking completed by a Yisrael is permitted.
8. According to Chizkiyah, the fish is permitted because salting is not the same as cooking. Rebbi Yochanan disagrees. According to Bar Kapara, the egg is permitted because it is cooked inside the shell without the Nochri coming into contact with the actual egg. Rebbi Yochanan disagrees.
9. If it was cooked in a pot too small to fit in the head of a tiny bird, it is permitted. The disagreement is when it was cooked in a big pot. According to one opinion, it is permitted, because if something non-kosher was cooked in the pot it gives a bad taste to the dates.
10. According to Rav Sheshes it is forbidden. Rav Safra maintains that it is permitted because there is no concern that the Nochri mixed wine into the oil, since this would cause it to spoil. The oil would also develop a bad taste if a non-kosher item was previously cooked in it.
11. Even if the dates were somewhat edible before they were cooked, they are forbidden. However, if the dates were completely edible when raw, they are permitted.
12. However, one is permitted to derive benefit from the pickles. If it is known for certain that wine was added, there is a disagreement about whether one is permitted to derive benefit from them.
