You can get a current copy of the Ball Blue Book Guide To Preserving and learn the basics of home canning of fruits in a Boiling Water Bath. On page 20 is a recipe for preserving mangoes in syrup.

Here is also another reference with various preparation and preserving ideas:

Dehydrate them too they are so yummy! I always get a large bag of dehydrated mangoes from the Philippines seems they last no time at all though

You might like to try this canning recipe also:

Mango Marmalade


2 lemons, very thinly sliced
2 cups water
2 mangos, peeled, thinly sliced
2 cups granulated sugar

1. Combine lemons and water in a medium stainless steel or enamel saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat, cover, reduce heat and boil gently for 25 minutes, stirring occasionally.

2. Add mangos to saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat, stirring constantly, reduce heat, cover and boil gently for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.

3. Stir in sugar. Return to a boil and boil rapidly, uncovered, until mixture will form a gel, about 15 minutes, stirring frequently.

4. Ladle into sterilized jars, leaving a 1/2" headspace, and process in a Boiling Water Canner for 5 minutes.
