  1. Preheat the oven to gas 7, 220°C, fan 200°C. Bring a large pan of cold salted water to the boil with 1 tbsp cider vinegar. Add the potatoes and simmer for 10-15 mins until just tender. Drain, shake lightly to fluff the potatoes, then leave to stand for 10 mins to cool and dry out.
  2. Pour the oil into a large roasting tin and put it in the oven for 5 mins to heat up. When hot, carefully tip in the cooled potatoes, using a metal spoon to baste them with the hot oil. Use a fork to firmly crush them in the middle, then roast for 50 mins, turning halfway and basting again, until golden and crispy. Leave to cool slightly for 5 mins, then toss with the salt and remaining vinegar. Scatter with the chives to serve.
