It depends on what the organic molecule is.

Some of them get dissolved in water - for instance sugars (carbohydrates) will dissolve in water.

To see this just get a teaspoon of sugar, but into some water, and stir: you will find that the crystals dissolve in water.

Fats however will not, they are what is known as immiscible, this is why you get a layer of fat or oil on top of something that is water soluble.
