Make Your Own Cooking Spray – A small batch

June 24, 2012 at 1:45 pm Leave a comment

Butane … BUTANE! Did you know that canned cooking sprays use butane as the propellant? I didn’t. But when my skillet went up in flames a few nights ago, I became very curious. Here is a DIY version I found online.

1 part oil
5 parts water
1 misting bottle

Fill the bottle with oil and water
shake VERY well before using it

The bottle shown is a 4-ounce version I found at the dollar store.

I guess if you have one of those pump-style misters, this isn’t for you. But I’m cheap thrifty, so for a buck and the cost of an ounce of oil, I was in.

#nofilter required when smoke from the #thomasfire envelopes the area. Wonderful canoe ride on #morrobay not Mars. Tx @akayakshack for the rental. Look forward to next time. #audreycancook Finally, only one sleeve to go on this project. I'm grateful that #noroyarn is sturdy, since I've #frogged the body of this sweater twice and the first sleeve three time. Can I say #homestretch now? #knittersofinstagram #knitting #audreycancook Sometimes a #toastedmarshmallow over an open flame is the only thing to satisfy. #audreycancook There are just never enough #teddybears. #knitting #knittersofinstagram #audreycancook Once a year I get to use my #enamal platter. Perfect for a #smallbatch Thanksgiving #audreycancook #persimmons are plentiful this time of year. 'What to do with them?' is always the question. I'm considering apple & persimmon #handpies a #smallbatch #audreycancook
