Since you can make several jars at a time, can this recipe be water-bath canned to preserve on the shelf? (probably a silly question, but I’m pretty new to canning….I’ve canned just one other recipe, but this one intrigued me b/c of the dates…)

Thanks for any insight!

What would you change if I just wanted to make apple butter? Without the dates..
