How To Make Your Own Cooking Spray

I guess you can tell I am back on a Natural Health Kick, or Green as they call it!!
So I'm searching for recipes to share with you for good healthy ways to Green Your Life plus they save money, and that's all GOOD, Right?
Here is another good idea
How To Make Your Own Cooking Spray
  • It’s as easy as 1 (pour) – 2 (shake) - 3 (spray)!
  • It cuts the amount of fat you use when cooking.
  • It saves money!
  • It eliminates nasty additives like BUTANE??
  • No sticky residue build-up on pans!
  • Well, I don’t know about you….but that is MORE than enough reasons for me to NEVER buy another one of those ridiculously over-priced cans.

    Ready to find out how to make it??
    To make your own cooking spray……pour oil and water into a spray bottle and shake well before use.
    Well OK, that is the EXTREMELY simplified version…but you get the picture. The EXTREMELY complicated version isn’t much different. :-)

    Homemade Cooking Spray

    by Natures Nurture
    1 part olive oil (or your choice of oil)
    5 parts water
    1 misting spray bottle
    Mix in your spray bottle 1 part olive oil to 5 parts water. In my 12 ounce bottle, I poured in 2 ounces of canola oil and added 10 ounces of water. Shake well and you’re done. That’s it. Store in a cool, dark place.

    Make sure the bottle you use is a MISTING spray bottle. (A plant mister would be perfect!) But the bottle I got at Walmart for about $1.50 works fine too.
    I just used plain canola oil because I was out of olive oil. I think I will try that next time. Both worked well. I just prefer the taste, texture, and performance of olive oil.
    Finally, just for fun, I printed out a ”Cooking Spray” label and slapped it on the bottle just so there would be no mistakes. And since most likely the spray bottle will be handled by oily, messy hands in the kitchen, I covered the whole label with clear, packaging tape.
