Hi everyone! I am new here and am nervous about some bone broth i am making. I am new to cooking so forgive me for asking. Everywhere I read it says to make sure the bones are covered with water when making bone broth. Well i had them in my crock pot last night with the bones all covered with water and when i woke up this morning the water evaporated exposing some of the bones. They were thick bones so about 1/2 of two of the bones were sticking out of water all night. I added more water when i woke up but now am nervous if the broth is bad to drink? Can I still drink this or will it make me sick since half of the bones were out of water all night?? Thank you so much for your reply!

submerging the bones is to ensure full flavor extraction. If parts were not submerged, the stock isn't bad -- it's just not a flavorful as it could have been. Very likely it will be light on taste (unless you used too much bones) and light on gelatin.
