Mixing Water with Fruit Juice

Question:

Someone who doesn’t eat gebrocks but does eat matzah together with salads or mei perot. If someone made a tomato dip (cooking tomatoes, garlic, peppers, and oil) and by mistake added water, until what amount of water may this be considered to be like mei perot still?

Answer:

The Shulchan Aruch writes that even a small amount of water mixed with mei perot is machmitz, and therefore if one is makpid on this, as soon as water is mixed into the mixture one will not be able to eat matzah with the mixture.

Best wishes.
