I have a question about the recipe "Maple Cream" from Carey Nershi. how long would you process in a water bath?

Hi, Meet Your Baker. I've done some research to see if I could figure out how long to process this product. First, no dairy product (cream) is safe for processing, so I considered only the option with oil. (Yes, commercial products might include dairy, but the processing temperatures are entirely different.)
I searched USDA recommendations and those from the National Center for Home Food Preservation. I can't find any similar recipes and because the viscosity and density of the maple cream is so variable, I do not recommend canning this product. Why not keep it in the refrigerator where it will hold for months?
