Sun Dried Tomato Chutney!

This is my version of Sun Dried Tomato Chutney as well as turning it into a steak sauce!  Yum!!  I LOVE this recipe!  So very easy and absolutely delicious!!  The original recipe can be found on SBCanning but I modified it for my allergies.  I almost always at least double this recipe to make it both a chutney and a steak sauce!!  Try it!  So easy!

Sun Dried Tomato Chutney & Steak Sauce

4 large tomatoes, peeled and chopped (3 cups)
1 cup finely chopped leek
1/2 cup chopped sun-dried tomatoes (not oil packed)
1/2 cup dried raisins
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1/2 inch piece ginger root, finely chopped
1/4 t. salt and hot pepper flakes

Combine tomatoes, leeks, sun dried tomatoes and raisins in a large stainless steel or enamel saucepan. Stir in sugar, water, vinegar, ginger root, salt and pepper flakes. Bring to a boil over high heat, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat to low and boil gently, uncovered for 30 minutes or until chutney is very thick, stirring frequently.

Remove hot jars from canner and ladle chutney into jars to within 1/2 inch headspace. Process 10 minutes for half pint jars. Makes 4 half pints.

For different texture you can also blend the chutney using an immersion or standard blender and use it like a steak sauce.
