Apple sauce,tomato sauce,etc.

how come when you mash a apple it is "apple sauce", when you mash a tomato it is "tomato sauce", but when you mash a potato, then it is "mashed potato" and not "potato sauce"?

Because it is thick and dry... and sauce is none of them.

Mashed potatoes are dry; they only have added milk. Applesauce and tomato sauce have added juice to make them... saucy. Mashed potatoes are dry and lumpy, applesauce and tomato sauce are creamy and smooth.

Well, if you boil the potatoes until they're mushy than I suppose you could make potato sauce. Now what would you call it if you squashed a squash?

Don't know but couldn't it be called squash sauce? Of course I'm talking about cooking the products first. Your question was regarding fresh uncooked fruits/vegetables.
