Scandinavian Pickled Beets

Recipe by  

"I'm told no good Dane or Swede considers a meal complete without these tangy treats. They add gorgeous color to any table. If you want to use fresh beets, peel and cook them. They can be served sliced or diced. Otherwise, just open a can like I do. Serve with slices of hard-boiled eggs."

Fantastic! Could be a little sweeter though. Maybe a little more sugar?

I love the flavor just the way it is. Can this recipe be canned?
