Brittle anyone? TNT

Butter a rimmed cookie sheet Sprinkle with 1 cup of finely chopped walnuts. Shake the pan to even out the nuts Now combine 2 cups sugar, 1/2 cup white vinegar, and 1/2 cup butter in a enameled saucepan bring to a boil over moderately high heat and pour hot candy over the walnut on the cookie sheet. Set aside to cool. Turn cookie sheet upside down flex the pan if necessary to remove candy. Break candy and nuts into bite sized pieces with a mallet on a bread board.Store in air tight container. enjoy

>> bring to a boil over moderately high heat and pour hot candy over <<

This just sounds too easy... hah! Don't you have to keep it at a controlled boil until it reaches a certain temperature?? My stepmother always used to make such a DEAL of it with her peanut brittle... "crack stage" I think it was 300?? Dropping threads of the syrup into cold water, etc.
