Homemade Ketchup (http://www.hillbillyhousewife.com/homemadeketchup.htm) (this is only P1 safe if you use all sweetener to replace the brown sugar. In P2, you could try the molasses option and see how you handle it, as it's a very small amount.)

i love this best of all. I leave out the sugar (it's for taste only, you don't need it, you can add splenda if you want). You don't have to can it, you can freeze it or put it in your fridge.

It makes a very grown-up catsup substitute (gourmet type spread)

Roasted Red Pepper Spread
6 lb. large red sweet peppers
1 lb. Roma tomatoes
2 large garlic cloves
1 small white onion
2 Tbsp. minced basil
1 Tbsp. sugar
1 tsp. coarse salt
1/2 cup red wine vinegar
Roast peppers under broiler or on a grill at 425 degrees until skin wrinkles and chars in spots. Turn over and roast other side. Remove from heat.Place in a paper bag, secure opening, cool 15 minutes. Roast tomatoes, onion, and garlic under broiler or grill 10 - 15 minutes. Place tomatoes in a paper bag. Peel onion and garlic. Finely mince onion and garlic.
Measure 1/4 cup and set aside. Peel and seed tomatoes and peppers. Puree in food processor or blender. Combine in a large pan.Bring to a boil over med.high heat, stir to prevent sticking. Reduce heat, simmer until spread thickens. Ladle hot spread into hot jars, leave 1/4 inch headspace. Process in water bath canner for 10 minutes.

Hunt's makes a low carb, no sugar catsup with Splenda that is SBD-friendly, although it can be hard to find in most grocery stores.
