  1. In a blender, mix together blueberries, 2 tablespoons of water, and vinegar until puréed; set aside.
  2. In a heavy-bottom saucepan set over medium heat, combine sugar and 2 tablespoons of water; cook, without stirring, for 8 to 10 minutes or until uniformly golden brown, swirling pan gently if browning unevenly.
  3. Remove from heat. Carefully whisk in blueberry purée, holding at arm’s length to avoid splatters. Return saucepan to stovetop; return to boil. Cook over medium heat for 10 to 15 minutes or until thickened and syrupy. Stir in cream; strain into a heatproof jar. Let cool completely.
