Kick the Can - Make Your Own Cooking Spray

video Kick the Can - Make Your Own Cooking Spray
My husband and son came up with this recipe for Butter Flavored Cooking Spray.  I like it because it is economical, easy, non aerosol, and environmentally friendly.

12-30-13 Update: My son uses this spray for his food cart business and I use it at home for stovetop cooking.  I do not use it for baking.  It does leave a residue, like most sprays so I would like to try a different oil base to see if there is less residue. You can also add lecithin, but I haven't tried it.

Butter Flavor Cooking Spray

Mix the following ingredients in a 16 ounce mist sprayer (available at most grocery stores and department stores)

3/4 cup vegetable oil

1/4 cup water

3/4 teaspoon Watkins Butter extract flavoring

This is my first foodie youtube.  I learned 2 things making the video: 1.) that I can't say mist sprayer and 2.) my son is awesome adding special effects :)
Good, I'll make my own and let you know how it goes, TKS
Nice, thanks. What is the reason for distilled water? can I use tap water?

Yes, you can use tap water instead of distilled water. The water makes it spray easier because the oil is too thick by itself.
