Substitute for mister?
I want to make goodhealthgourmet's lime chips today, but just noticed the instructions are to mix oil and lime juice and spray on tortillas with a mister, which I don't have.
Can I use a brush instead of a mister? Any other ideas?
Thanks for your help.
There really isn't any substitution. A brush will put the oil on too thick.
(I'd guess that the recipe tells you to emulsify the lime and oil before spraying it.)
Do you have a toothbrush you've never used? An arts and crafts technique from gradeschool involved using a toothbrush, some water soluble paint and a popsicle stick. Draw the popsickle stick across the slightly wetted toothbrush until you can tell what it takes to get a very light spatter.
That's the only thing I can think of to mimic a handpumped spray can.
