That’s it.
Just cut a wedge of lemon and put it in the pot.
If you rub the lemon juice over the shells before you put them in the water it will help to stop the shells cracking too.
The acidity of the lemon helps keep the shells intact and also helps make the egg white more alkaline, thus less likely to stick to the shell.
Enjoy.
