Team FIN farmer finds exotic foods from the Far East

On a recent trip to Florida, Team FIN farmer Jeff Ryan from Cresco, IA, explored an Asian market where he found an abundance of food items he had never before seen. Among his finds were live eels, chicken feet, roasted coconut juice, duck eggs and more.

Here, Jeff tells his story in photos as he explored the market. In the end, he may have been a little out of his culinary comfort zone. From his blog:

"The minute we got on the ground back home in the Midwest again, I drove straight to The Nook in St. Paul to get myself a burger stuffed with cheese and some onion rings on the side. 

Guy Fieri would be proud. Andrew Zimmern from "Bizarre Foods America," not so much.
