Introduction: 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 :)

    The reason for distilled, is because tap water will not hold up! It will spoil much, much faster than distilled.

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