Help! The recipe I'm making says to cook the sugar to make a "medium caramel." Does this look right?

I'm making brittle--kicking off the holiday indulgence a little bit early!

Looks good! Good for you for getting started early. I wish I were as organized as you are.

The best way, actually to see the color of your caramel is to drop a few drops onto a white plate. It tends to look darker in the pot than it may truly be.
