'Chips' as a unit of measurement, or a style of cut?

    Hi foodies,

    I have a recipe book (The French Café Cookbook) and am attempting one of the dessert recipes. It refers to a recipe for Confit Strawberries as requiring '1 Chip Strawberries'. Several of the other recipes refer to a chip.

    I have googled extensively, and don't know whether a chip is a unit of measurement (if so, what?) or a style of cut (which would, certainly for the recipe in question, appear to be a dice), so am looking for advice?

    Thanks!

    That's a book from New Zealand right? A chip of strawberry in New Zealand is a small basket of strawberries:

    Perfect, thanks!

    It's a british book, but that makes sense.

    A non specific measurement, I used my judgement ;-)
