I’m guessing when you say, “Sand from the beach” you are talking about sand from beside a lake or river – not the sea.
You can use sea sand but you may need to rinse it a little. And, if it’s very fine, it may cake on the surface.
You also have to be aware of hazards such as drains or sewage outfalls which could add chemicals or pathogens to your harvested sand. Be sure to check upriver, or along the tidal beach before taking sand or shingle – or even weed for the compost heap.
Thanks for all your great ideas – and Holly, for your imaginative preserving recipes.
