Not quite domesticated...

My friend taught me this really easy toffee recipe last year, and I decided to try it again this year.

 Only I couldn't remember her advice as to how long to let it boil-- either until the color changes, or it just begins to smoke, or perhaps it was for a certain number of minutes. I had to look online and decided upon 7 minutes, while stirring constantly. Nowhere did anyone mention to avoid stirring with a plastic spoon.
