! Slicing and dicing tip, if you cut the potatoes in half and then score a line into the potato half across its length down the middle but not cut it completely then score it in this manner width ways creating a grid. Then if you cut it from the top down in layers one inch deep you get cubes effortlessly.
i) Peel the potatoes.
ii) Slice the potatoes into small pieces I tend to aim for inch cubes.
iii) Cut your chives/spring onions into ½ an inch pieces and put the pieces to one side.
iv) Place the potato pieces into a saucepan of water.
