    Preheat oven to 190C. Place potatoes in a bowl, drizzle with oil, add remaining salt, toss to combine and transfer to a roasting tray. Roast until golden and cooked through (45-55 minutes), then set aside to steam (5 minutes). Cut a cross on top of each potato, top with whipped cultured butter and chives, season to taste and serve.
