Of course you can.
It's the eaysiest way to have a minimum of availability with two nodes.

Just share a directoey via NFS (/etc/exports) on each node, say :
/save on node1
/save on node2

Declare these storage as a NFS shared storage in Proxmox.
save1 as node1:/save
save2 as node2:/save

And create backups on node1 to storage save2, on node2 to storage save1.
