Notice the correction on the spelling of “sirup?”
Not to quibble with proportions, but four pounds of apples would be somewhere between one and two dozen apples, depending on size. If the instructions are suggesting I add six grated apples to the approximately eighteen apples called for in the “four pounds,” I’d say this is apple marmalade with a little citrus added.
I think a more reasonable thing to do is ignore the four pounds and go with six apples.
